This is a great species that grows quite slow; one collector in Australia waited 31 years for his to bloom for the first time! Upon a quick glance, looks a little like xerographica but the leaves are much shorter and do not recurve below the base of the plant.  Roseoscapa can also handle more direct light than xerographica, taking on a nice pink blush with strong filtered light of partial direct light
