I grow it in the shade in a pot of well drained peaty soil. For a couple of years I have been frightened to split it for fear of killing it, but I have finally been forced into it, and it seems to be prospering so I may have a bit more courage next year.
The species comes from south-eastern Australia from southern Queensland to Tasmania, but away from the drier inland continemtal parts.

The first picture is not of my plant . I took this at the Alpine Garden Society show in Exeter. A rushed picture in a show hall has somehow turned out better than anything I have managed in the greenhouse here!
