It forms a basal rosette of large rounded, fleshy leaves, which are grayish cream with red margins.

Sowing: Sow the seeds, which are light brown and very fine, on a fine sandy medium and water from below by placing the trays in a drip tray to allow water to be soaked up by the soil, and then remove the tray and let it drain. The following medium usually works well with most succulents:
4 parts coarse river sand
4 parts fine river sand
1 part sieved well-rotted compost
1 part perlite
1 part vermiculite
Always treat seeds with a pre-emergence fungicide as seedlings often suffer from fungal diseases which causes them to die rapidly after germination. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: October 2023
