    More than likely you got a P. primuliflora. depending upon how neglected the plant was before you bought it will determine if it will react to the cahnge in environment. This plant will do wonderfully well inside, open tray, on a window sill. I think that if you were to check the back of a typical seed packet froma garden center, it will show a map of the US, with colored zones and numbers.

    An individual plant is ~1.5" in diameter. However, they reproduce! And after a few months you could easily have a clump of them.

    I agree! I had one that spread like crazy!!

    They are easy beginer pings if they have good circulation, they are suseptable to mold more than other CP's that ive grown.

    This is gonna sound stupid, but when you got it was there a cover thing on it? If there was be careful with it, I found this one to be really sensitive to the sudden humidity change. Ive only had two P. primuflora so far. The first one died when I was on vacation, came home and it was bone dry . The second one is about two years old now. And I dont think a bomb could kill it. I have it in full sun and keep it flooded. Now that I think of it, I should really repot it tommorow, the plantlets are starting to form over in the water now
