This photo is actually X-Barbulatum Hookerii. Meaning that it is crossed between these two cultivars. Individual plants are grass like and average from 1/8th to 1/2 inches in diameter. The outer leaves turn deep red. The inner leaves are green unless grown in slightly acid and damp to wet soil where the inner leaves will turn chartrouse to yellow. In a four inch pot, they will look like a bowl of strawberries. I love it.
