This incredible-looking succulent is one of the most sought-after rare succulents amongst plant keepers.  It has unique layered petal-like leaves that almost make it look like green roses, its natural bonsai-like final mature structure just makes that much more appealing. This plant grows very fast into maturity. 

Despite its stunning looks, It is a low-maintenance plant with relative ease of care.  They do say "don't judge a book by its cover".  These are great for both beginners and pros when kept indoors with a decent amount of lighting, are potted in fast-draining soil, and watered once a week. If you plan on keeping them outdoors, or planted directly in your garden, make sure you live in a hardiness zone of between 9a to 11b.  The Portulaca Molokiniensis is definitely a one-of-a-kind.
