Argyroderma

Extremely succulent plants forming two smooth, silvery-green, half-egg shaped leaves each growing season. Coming from the Banrhynsdorp area, they are winter growers.  They do best when given frequent light waterings instead of regular heavy drenches. Flowers vary from white to yellow to magenta in fall and early winter. The species vary in body shape.
