The name "Trichodiadema" comes from the ancient Greek "τρῐχός" (=hair, bristle) and "διαδεμα" (=crown)
Small short-stemmed succulent with stretched alternating small items of 0.8 cm long. They are grey and green. At the apex of articles are small bristles radiating around the center giving the appearance of a cactus areole.
The flowers look like daisies, but with petals dark red, worth the nickname "Desert Rose".
The plant requires sun exposure (but not too intense sun) and well-drained soil.
propagation is by division of the clumps. Cuttings are very uncertain because of the risk of rot.
