I haven't seen it in habitat, that I know of. The rock formation it is reported to grow on is extremely uncommon and distinctive.

Xerophyticum is not very accurate.

This is a rain forest plant with a drier winter. The pockets of humus it grows in would almost never get completely dry.

You know, for some reason I pictured it growing in some Mexican desert. Thanks for the info though.

I've wondered whether the name was given to throw people off the trail.
