Yes, My crested L.uckhofia buekmannii ( I wiil learn the spelling if it kills me) is showing new growth and some sun stress and it only gets morning sun, so I guess I should move it into deeper shade. Any one grow these outside in the hot hot weather areas? I do like how the sun stress combines with the green of the new growth. I wonder if it is stress that it can take lkike aloes take their stress. Anyone know. I don't see much information on these.

YES, it is!! One of my faves I kept it alive through the famous Texas drought with weekly waterings. It makes maroon flowers structured like the Hoodia flowers. Now if it would only bloom. I stare at it alot during the evening hours.

Has anyone grown this...I am still wondering about its requirements. I had never seen it before I saw it in the store. It was love at first site. How long does it take to bloom? Fertilizer? soil? The usual questions.
