Meeting Information

Tephrocactus, Tylecodon are the mini show plants

Tephrocactus
Tephrocactus is a small genus in the subfamily Opuntioideae which is endemic to Argentina. The stems grow in very distinct segments, but unlike the flat-pads found on the genus Opuntia, the segments of Tephrocactus are round. This can be either in short cylinders, egg shaped, or even spherical.

Tylecodon
Tylecodon are found within the crassulacea family. The genus of around 46 species is very diverse in habitat and quite variable in form, ranging from dwarf single leaved to large thick-stemmed. The distribution of Tylecodon is restricted to the Northern, Western and Eastern Cape provinces of South Africa and Southern Namibia. The plants occur quite abundantly in habitats that vary from the rocky coastal shores, rock crevices in mountainous terrain and in sandy hilly terrain.
