From Botanica Encyclopedia:
This genus comprises of 30-odd species of dwarf succulents native to semi-desert areas in South Africa. They reach a height of about 4" and a width of approximately 1-2". The short-stemmed leaves are flat, oval to cylindrical and mottled in color. White-pink flowers are borne on long spikes, not more than 1/2", in summer.
They prefer well-drained soil in a partially shaded position and are frost tender. Propagate from stem or leaf cutings, or from seed. All members of this genus are vulnerable to mealybug.
Indigenous to the Transvaal area, umbraticola has thick, oval-shaped green leaves with reddish orange margins.
Zones 10-11.
