This dwarf species is a true collector's item.  Rarely exceeding a few inches tall, it has a distichous growth pattern and short, succulent, recurving leaves.  Make sure you put this plant in a visible place because it is easy to lose track of!

This major form of the species has much thicker leaves, grows slightly larger, and tends to be a darker gray color
