* This plant has a small root system and is in a three inch terracotta pot in a west-facing window. I've had it for over a year now. It's in cactus soil and I water it every other week or so.*

I like this plant. It is very interesting and only recently has it started to push out the tiniest leaves. It is a slow growing plant but its uniqueness makes up for the lack of growth.
