(This plant is not on the Australian Noxious Weed List)
A native of South Africa where it grows in the Cape Province near the Orange River and so has a summer rainfall regime. Dinteranthus is a close relative of Lithops and adult plants behave exactly like Lithops except they like even less water.
The difference between Dinteranthus and Lithops is that the former has a distinctive keel along the lower leaf surface. The leaf pairs are separated by a deep cleft from which new leaves and the yellow flower arises. Watering should cease after flowering and not recommence until the new leaves develop and the old leaves have completely shrivelled.
Like most succulents, excellent drainage and good light are essential for success.
Suitable for rockeries, pots or general garden site.
