Thisis the ideal plant for plant collectors who are in lack of space!!!! The roset is not larger than 5/10 mm and flower stalk not higher than 20 mm. They are raely the juwels in the succulent plants. Quit easy in culture in a very dry substrat.
In ly greenhouse only 6 time a year watering. They are original from the Island of Tenerife (Canry Islands) and grow as from 100mter upto 1100 meter. They have a (very) small caudex (about 2/3mm) and so I supose they are the smallest plants with caudex!! I have some spare plants, interested? Send me a mail
