In South Africa these plants grow naturally on virtually inaccessible wet cliff faces in cool moist areas at high altitude where there growth habit is pendulous making them unsuitable to be used as bedding plants. In their natural habitat they generally grow on South facing slopes that only get a little sun in the early morning. I have had mixed results growing these plants due to the fact that I live in a subtropical region with very high temperatures and humidity in summer
