Central Phoenix -- I have tried this plant several times in the ground and in large outdoor pots. It does not like sun. In shade and with winter cover, I can get it to grow for up a year or two, but with continual diminishment until death. I am currently trying it in a pot that is in a greenhouse in winter and in heavy shade in summer.
Added in December 2015 -- that plant did not survive the summer.

I have tried this wonderfully curious plant several times, but I think I keep getting it wet in the winter (summer growing mesemb) and rotting it. Oh well. Great, warty skin on this S African groundcover plant. Best in pots and a bit cold tender so watch frost.
