Notes for the Genus:

Argyroderma

The genus Argyroderma is restricted to the Knersvlatke area in southern Namaqualand in the northwestern part of the Western Cape Province, South Africa. They are compact, dwarf succulents, tufted or single-bodied, and rarely sunken in the ground. The highly succulent leaf pairs are rounded or thumb-shaped and in pairs united at the base. The characteristic silvery green leaves are smooth. The plants are extremely popular among collectors. They should be treated lie Lithops and watered during the summer. Care, however, must be taken not to water the plants too much lest the leaves split. Argyroderma prefer a well-drained loamy soil; they donít like frequent repotting and can be grown in relatively small pots for years. They are propagated by seed or division of multi-headed plants.
