It grows to perfection in warm Mediterranean climates, but it is tolerant of a wide range of conditions. It prefers full sun but it can be placed in half shade during the summer months or in subtropical or tropical areas. It can take light frosts, but it is better kept above 5 C to avoid fungal problems.

It grows very well in pots, filled with a drained soil mix with sand or grit. It is also used in succulent gardens in frost free areas.
