Oophytum Nanum Mesembryanthemum Seeds
Oophytum is a genus of succulent plants native to the Cape Provinces of South Africa. Both species are endemic to the Knersvlakte. Egg-shaped Oophytum plants develop two leaves opposite each other per season. At the end of winter the outer pair forms a sheath from which the new pair of leaves develop. Water cells are visible on the soft leaves giving them a shimmering appearance. The flowers, produced in winter, are white, pink, or a combination of both.
