It thrives in shaded areas, where it is difficult for other plants to grow. This is why it can also be perfect as an indoor plant.
It needs sparse watering in small quantities (as it is a kind of cactus). If we start to "over-water" it, we will surely have the adverse effect.
Its flowers are small and delicate, yet extremely beautiful, subtended by long, petal-like bracts which give the plant a perfect image of beauty and harmony all year long.
Its most popular varieties are the white and the red one – with the former being the more impressive.
It is a better fit for pots than for soil. However, it is perfect for rock gardens, also known as rockeries.
