Frequently mistaken for a small streptophylla, diguetii is a small mexican species that is quite popular among collectors.  Leaves mostly stay wavy and don't typically curl as much as a streptophylla leaf, but the older leaves do recurve down below the base of the plant.  Upper foliage will hold a nice blush with strong light, but I would personally avoid too much direct light
