This an old blog that I am reviving at the moment. My home made websites work well and I would like to continue with them. Blogger however is so easy to deal with now and saves a lot of time. I shall therefore place posts here and may transfer some to my other websites later that are better indexed for specific searches. The indexing/content of the old posts need to be improved - Will work on it bit by bit. You are welcome to leave comments - unfortunately I cannot reply to them as it causes Firefox errors.

HAWORTHIA AND SUCCULENT AUCTION

Conophytum truncatum ssp. truncatum var. wiggettiae

Conophytum truncatum ssp. truncatum var. wiggettiae grows naturally in the vicinity of De Rust, Dysselsdorp and also Calitzdorp.

In the De Rust and Dysselsdorp areas the plants prefer hills made of enon comglomerate, often with a reddish colour. 

The plants themselves have a reddish tint and multiple papillae on the surface. Seedlings  grown in shade often lack the reddish colour until exposed to more sunlight.

The plants however avoid full day sun by growing mostly on the southern or south eastern slope of a hill.
