A rather succulent species from South Eastern Africa which produces a little fat caudex at ground level. The pink flowers are produced on short stems.
I am not sure how hardy it will be, at present I am keeping it dry under cover, but I should probably bring the spare seedling into somewhere a bit warmer, just in case!

Five months later and nothing much has changed. This was unfortunately the last picture I took of the plant. Shortly afterwards the frost descended and destroyed it
with a finality that does at least clarify the issue of hardiness - insufficient!
