Conophytum jucundum (near Groenrivier)

This species is very widespread in the Richtersveld and consequently quite variable. In fact, the relationships between the various ecotypes of C. jucundum and also C. obscurum need further research. It is easily grown and a good starter plant. It might be better known under the later name of C. gratum or one of the various other segregate species that have been lumped together.
