A selected form of the species with very heavily spotted leaves. An excellent small plant for a pot and it seems to divide and increase easily.

Native to a small region in the Drakensberg range in South Africa where it grows at elevations of 2200 - 2500m. I would like to think it would be hardy, but I have lost the species (repeatedly) during the winter so now it stays in the greenhouse where it might get cold but it will be dry.
