It is a small stemless plant, often found growing in clumps large enough to encircle a tree branch. They form a bulky rosette, standing like an aloe, 8 to 10 cm in height. Its leaves are colored from gray to red. They are triangular, tough, superimposed and especially erect. The lower face is scaly and grayish. Before flowering, the end of the central leaves (bracts) turns to a stunning pink. At the time of flowering, the violets flowers with long stamens like two yellow bayonets, appears in the middle of the plant. When grown in bright light the entire plant quickly turns a fiery crimson color, with grape-violet flowers emerging from the center. The Shy Plant requires a sharp light in summer and sun in winter. Place it close to a window directed at the west in summer and the south in winter. If you cultivate it in a pot, place it on a wet gravel bed. This plant absorbs water mainly by its leaves. In winter, when the temperature gets cooler, stop watering to let the soil dry for a short period. It is often fixed on pieces of wood or plates of bark using wire, with the roots surrounded by foam of sphagnum. Its installation can take place anytime in the year, except during flowering. The Shy Plant can also be cultivated out of a pot if the substrate is porous and drains well. In this case, you can use fibers of Osmond, sphagnum moss or sphagnum peat, and pearlite like substrate, and gravel for the bottom of the pot. This plant once out of pot should almost never be repotted.
