Grows to a maximum diameter of around 10 cm.

Keep perfectly dry in winter at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees centigrade. (but it is relatively cold resistant and hardy to -7° (-10°)C for short periods)
In the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!!

They need a good amount of light shade to full sun to help to keep the plants healthy, although slow growth.
