Argyroderma, native to South Africa, is a genus that is part of the family Aizoaceae, which includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". This particular plant is one of several species and is basically a silvery blue-green bilobe (two fleshy leaves forming what appears to be a small blue-green Easter egg). Silky flowers appear in autumn, and depending upon the species, can be yellow, majenta, white, pink or purple. Requires very porous soil with less humus or peat moss. Decomposed granite is often an excellent media as it has many trace minerals and is similar to the South African quartz fields where these and others of the "Stone Mimicry" are found growing. Bright light with ample airflow. Water thoroughly during growing season. As with Lithops, or any other such extremely succulent (water-filled) plant, it is best to err on the side of too little water than too much water. Protect from frost.
