This is not an easy plant to grow for me. It needs slug protection and is best placed in a crevice. Too much water will easily kill it, but it will also shrivel away during a hot dry spell if not monitored. Lastly, it is not overly winter hardy without some sort of protection from rain. (snow is OK). Definitely a challenge unless you are in Alaska or Canada!
