Conophytum

 

Conophytum are an insteresting genus of small rock looking leaf succulents from Southern Africa. The genus was largely reorganized by Steven Hammer in his excellent book : The genus Conophytum : a conograph. A lot of named species were reduced to synonyms.

Watering conophytum is somewhat of an art. They are dormant in summer, and at that time use the water reserves in the leaves that shrink and die slowly. Occasional misting at this time is enough. In the fall, the new leaves start coming out, water moderately in winter as the plant is growing. Excess water can make the leaves crack. Use half-strength water soluble fertilizer occasionnally.

The Conophytum grow fairly easily from seed.
