Many decades when I was growing cactii and succulents in my greenhouse I always wanted to grow these, but never got around to growing them. This is a new purchase for the house and garden and I do not know how I will fare. They are said to need full sunlight for only a part of the day and part shade, but high light for the rest. If grown indoors in the winter they lose their resistance to high light and will burn and die if not hardened off carefully. They flower between the two thick leaves. I wonder if I will get them to flower. I live in hope.
