This species, from the Western Cape Province of South Africa, is mostly a winter grower but can also grow during the summer if treated carefully. Seedlings look like little knobby spheres about 1.5 inches in diameter. These will grow into a flat topped, tightly packed group of stems up to a foot in diameter. The species is dioecious, producing clusters of yellow cyathia. This species has become very rare in habitat. Our seedlings are ready to flower and are multiheaded in 5-inch pots.
