A native to South Africa, this cute little plant forms pagoda shaped rosettes. Porous soil with adequate drainage. Water with caution in winter......can lose roots if the soil stays wet and cold for too long. Protect from frost. Hardy to 32 degrees.

This is a beautiful plant that I lucked up on at the local Lowes. The plant has a tag indicating it is South African, needs porous soil when dry, and forms pagoda shaped rosettes. This, like most cactus, loves bright light.
This little plant, grows to 3 inches, specimen is hardy to zone 9. Some like it hot.
The rosettes are green with purple tips on the older leaves. Leaves are clustered to form aforementioned pagoda shape.
The tag offers the web-site cactuscollection for information.
I wonder if this can be propagated through the break piece/ root piece/plant piece technique I've used with other cacti. Guess it's experiment time.
Handsome plant, nice color.
