The succulent leaves have pink & silver splashed along the edges & sometimes the midrib; variegation disappears when in extended extremely warm conditions. Be prepared: if shipped during warmer times of the year, little pink will be visible. After considerable trial and error with shipping this exotic, we now prefer to send strong unrooted cuts in dry perlite to avoide any damage on the trip to you. Originally shared with us by Patti Lee. If you do not have a sunny greenhouse, this can be difficult, very difficult indeed.
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
