We love this species due to the succulent leaves that almost look like little turtles. The leaves are also quite stunning with their dark green colour and maroon to purple venation when young which turns to white venation as the leaves age. During shipping this species often drops leaves, once re-potted it will quickly rebound though and fill in the area that it is planted in.
They prefer slightly moist but well drained soil, taking care not to overwater. Thriving in a well- lit position, protected from direct sunlight.
