Care and Culture, Classification
Frequently grown, particularly in bottle gardens, this is one of the smaller species. It forms a rosette of 15-25 leaves, 2-3 in. (5-7.5cm) long and tapering to a point, with the edges waved and spined.
In shade, the leaves are yellow-green with central and marginal stripes of dark green; in stronger light, they are tinged with bright pink, particularly at the base; and in bright light, the whole plant becomes reddish pink and loses much of the green.
