T. kingiana is very rare in nature. It occurs from the Herbetsdale in the Wwest to the Great Brak in the East. Plants from Herbetsdale are different from typical kingiana from Great Braka area, some influence of minima is possible. In cultivation it is still quite uncommon species and also not the easist one. Propagation can be done by seeds or offsetts.
