Gardeners' Notes:

Positive pieohmy On Nov 25, 2007, pieohmy from Independence, LA (Zone 8b) wrote:

This plant does very well in filtered shade in the summer here. I had it protected from the rain and watered it myself. Watered once or twice a week depending on humidity levels at the time. It also did well for me during the winter last year. Our winters are pretty mild so I did move it outside on warmer days. It didn't seem to mind being inside but it definently did not grow much during the winter months.

Positive and negative, I guess, totals a neutral.
I love the lavender hues to the leaves, and it's polite growing habit...WHEN it grows.. Unfortunately, here: four houses off the Monterey Bay, It seems to be crabby. It wants to become gelatinous and 'leaf the building' more easily than my other succulents.

I got into this website looking for data about it.
