I have this in my succulent collection, growing on a baker's rack on my porch, where it gets bright light but is not rained on. I water it only by drops a week, like several others I have that prefer drier conditions in our south Louisiana humidity. It's now 3 years old and although small has multiplied by 2 root pups. It's a novelty plant like a Fairy's Castle that the grandkids enjoy checking on.
