Its name comes from the Greek "trichos"- hair, and "diadema"- crown due to the "crown of hairy, white bristles" that the leaves of these plants have. T. Densum is often called 'Miniature Desert Rose' because of its bonsai-like habit. It is a succulent plant, although its tiny spines may suggest it is a cactus, very compact and low growing, groundcover. Its strongly branched stems become woody over time.  From autumn to spring you can admire its abundant flowering, its magenta-purple flowers open only in the morning and close in the afternoon.

Plant care:

It likes very bright places, however, avoid direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 6 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once a month during autumn-winter and then suspend it completely.

A soil suitable for cacti is an optimal solution, even better if further mixed with pumice or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
