Cultivation and propagation: It is dormant and leafless during colder months when it should be kept totally dry. When grown outdoors, temperatures under 15°C damage the plant.

Growth rate: It grows well, though slowly. It’s susceptible to rotting if too wet.

Exposure: It needs light shade, but the caudex should be in the shade, while the leaves prefer some sun. Avoid direct blasting sun in summer. Bright light if grown indoors.

Soil: In pots it needs a very porous potting medium.

Plant is doing great!

The pictures are true to the specimen I received. It has been doing very well in the few weeks I've had it with new leaves and clear signs of growth on the little caudex. I attached a photo of the plant when I received it a few weeks ago and a couple of photos of how it looks today.
