Notes for the Genus:

Monilaria

The genus Monilaria is limited to Namaqualand in the Western and Northern Cape Provinces of South Africa. The plants are characterized by succulent stems, regularly constricted at persistent leaf bases, making them resemble a string of beads. The beads will split in the fall, and the leaves begin to grow. They need sufficient water at this time and also a good deal of light to encourage the development of flower buds. Monilaria blossom in the fall and winter, but are difficult to flower in cultivation. They are propagated by seed.
