I've tried this plant from several sources but only Kirstenbosch-1999 seed is living long enough to flower.  Hand pollination has yielded seed. They are in half sand, half peat-lite mix, grown "hard" (rootbound, low fertilization, water stress during late winter/early spring) and not disturbed when potting on. Outdoors, try it in a crevice.
