Conophytum Calculus Succulent Seeds

Conophytum calculus is a small South African species of succulent plant of the genus Conophytum.

It grows rounded ball-shaped succulent plant, that divides to form dense clumps. The resemblance to pebbles and the firmness of its flesh is what got it its name (“calculus” is Latin for “pebble”). It produces yellow or orange flowers in autumn, that open at night, and have the aroma of cloves. The clove-scented flowers are pollinated by moths at night.

This species is popular in cultivation. However it requires lots of bright light, very well-drained sand, and specific winter-watering conditions.
