I got it in the main local plantshop last fall, but the plants were grown in greenhouse conditions and already looked poor in the shop. I tried anyway, but have now only a tiny plantlet and a trunk with some tiny leaves left. I guess that it will soon go from my "have-list" to my "wish-list" .... I believe that it is not so rare in cultivation so I'll sooner or later get it again ...
