This is the most compact species in the genus Glottyphyllum, and to many the most beautiful. Let it bake in full sun and it will turn deep red when stressed. Lovely low-lying heads creep on the soil and flowers are often seen in Spring and Fall.
It is easy to grow, and just as the rest of the genus Glottiphyllum, it is chiefly winter-growing but it does not have a true resting season. and it likes to be sprinkled throughout the year.
