    I'm guessing Tom Barr himself must have this plant. Its color is unlike any other and reminds of those succulents sold at Home Depot painted in neon paint. Not an easy grow I read and plants of tissue culture size are going for $100. Like that would stop a pro..who MUST HAVE IT!..ha. I know how it goes.

    I’m currently growing chai from t/c. Very slow grower needing high light, co2 and rich soil. The colors are definitely intense and unique, especially considering the age of the plant so far (5 weeks)

    the cup of t/c yielded 7 plants. Of the 7, 3 established itself and rooted immediately, 2 melted back completely and slowly has grown back, the final two seems to have failed.

    I grow a lot of stems and carpeting plants, this one is strikingly different and by far the slowest.
