Argyroderma subalbum

We recently visited the Kirstenbosch Gardens. In the succulent house I am came across this little gem, hiding amongst a load of larger plants.

Argyroderma subalbum is native to the Knersvlakte, Little Namaqualand and features smoky purple flowers in winter. See a pic of it in bloom here.

wow! this is great. I have had a couple of similar ones in Durban but they always seem to rot in our rainy, humid, summer.

i can imagine. it is the wrong climate for them. they grow in semi-arid areas with long dry summers and rainfall in the winter months. the opposite of durban.
