    I think it depends on your conditions.

    I've been growing mine indoors (temperate terrarium) and had smashing success so far with adelae. I started with 1 in May (a Lowes rescue, so it wasn't in great shape) it's plantlets now number them at 10. But the one I placed outdoors isn't that happy, and is no longer reproducing. I think outdoors a different species would be happier, as the climate is not Aussie-like out there.

    I tried capensis indoors, along with spatulata, and a couple others and I killed them all. I know it was something to do with my care/conditions because capensis and spatulata are renowned as prolific growers.
