Tectorum has many different varieties growing in its wide range of habitats, and mature plants vary greatly in shape and size.  Smaller plants are often 5 – 8 cm in width and height.  Larger plants can attain sizes of 25 – 30 cm.  This plant lives in a nutrient deficient environment. Since there are so few nutrients available, it has evolved a very slow rate of growth. The floral bracts are purple, which contrast strikingly with the snowy white leaves.  The small petals are aster violet, although some varieties have white tips.  It requires very bright light and sunny conditions.  Water sparingly every 2 – 3 weeks.  A very pretty species, worth collecting.
