Sorry, this item is out of stock



The genus Dinteranthus occurs in the north-western parts of the Northern Cape Province, South Africa and the south-eastern parts of Namibia. The small spheroid bodies of these plants resemble other rock-like mesembs such as Lithops. The leaf pairs are separated by a deep cleft from which the flower arises. Unlike other sphaeroids, however, the leaves often have a distinct keel along the lower leaf surface. The plants are popular among collectors. They need excellent drainage and a good deal of light. They should be treated like Lithops, though they require less water.

Dinteranthus microspermus is a small stemless succulent that grows above ground and not markedly buried. It is usually solitary or few branched.
