|Mestoklema tuberosa is a member of the Aizoaceae family. It was given this name by Nicholas Edward Brown in 1981. It is found on the Eastern Cape Province of the Republic of South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The swollen roots, each four centimetres in diameter will form clusters up to 20 centimetres in diameter. The plant can grow to 60 centimetres in height. The flowers are reddish, pink or salmon, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings.
Mestoklema arboriforme is a shrubby mesemb growing to 18-24 inches tall from the arid northern Cape of South Africa and into Namibia. Develops a miniature tree-like habit with a gnarled caudex that has smooth red bark; makes a very showy container plant, especially once the tuberous roots develop. Grow with tuberous roots in soil to develop size, then lift plant and replant with roots exposed. Keep twiggy stems trimmed for best look. The small yellow-orange flowers appear in spring. Very dry growing. Plant is full sun or bright shade. Is cold tolerant to at least the low 20s° F. There are differing opinions on whether the plants generally found in cultivation are M. tuberosa or M. arboriforme. Both have yellow to orange flowers and the description of these two in Jacobsen is vague enough that it could be either.
