Cultivation: Although regarded as a choice and difficult plant in cultivation it is
relatively easy to grow. It is usually seen as a grafted plant but can
be rooted and it very
well on its own roots too. Use mineral well
permeable substratum with little organic matter (peat, humus). Water
March till October and keep perfectly dry in
at temperatures from 5 to 15 degrees centigrade.
(but it is
Hardy to -7°C for short periods) In
the rest period no high atmospheric humidity!!
Light shade to full sun.
grafted to accelerate growth.
It can also propagated by cuttings from spring to summer (It branchs enthusiastically,
and offsets are readily available) If you remove an offset, remember to let it dry for a
week or so, letting the wound heal (cuttings planted too soon easily rot
before they can grow roots).
