Native to South Africa, forms small rosettes to 3" in diameter with light green finger-like leaves. Leaves have tuberculate texture, particularly at the tips. Flowers are daisy-like with many golden petals.
Considered a "Mimicry Plant"
In its native habitat, often grows in rocky quartz fields in soils with high limestone content.
Requires porous soil with excellent drainage. Bright light. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, but allow to dry out between waterings.
Some frost tolerance, but it is advisable to protect from frost to prevent possible scarring.
