    Love it! Is the plant a mini? I would assume so, but you know what they say...

    For the moment the leaves are P.parishii size, but the spikes are twice longer...but mine is still young, so we'll see the next years!!:D

    Beautiful! I have never heard of this species. Where was it discovered, and what are the growing conditions?

    It was Discovered in China's mountains and so it needs cool conditions, with a dry winter and shade!!

    Thanks,
    It sounds like it would do well in Alberta's cold winters. This one would not need to be under lights, is that right?
