Prof. Bellstedt obtained this species from the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve.  Note that there are several plants in this single common pot -- S. prolixus typically has but one leaf, although it will sometimes produce several additional leaves when the original enlarged cotyledon  dies.  A photo of a white form of the  species can be seen by clicking here.   Note that the white form is generally larger, although flowers and general habit are similar to the one shown here.  Other photos of a cultivated plant, somewhat different in flower form, can be seen here.
