Questions? feel free to email me.Didymaotus lapidiformis is a fascinating chunky succulent that looks like a lithops on steroids! It grows in the arid winter rainfall regions of the Tanqua Karoo, near Ceres, in the Western Cape. Is a compact succulent plant that has two opposite, fleshy, triangular leaves that lie flat on the ground. Paired flowers are borne at each side of the leaf. It flowers in September of each year. Flowers are either white, pink or silver pink and are 40 mm in diameter. The seed capsules ripen very quickly. The plant lives for about 20-25 years in its natural habitat. The current conservation status of the plant is Vulnerable. Didymaotus lapidiformis is considered vulnerable as a result of its localized and restricted habitat, and also the roads department cut a divisional road right through one of the few populations in the 1920s. In later years a borrowpit (area where aggregate is mined for road works) was excavated in the middle of what was one of the largest populations. Succulent collectors, over the years, have added to this species' further decline. Didymaotus lapidiformis is found in a restricted part of the eastern Tanqua Karoo. It grows in sandy mudstone shales in the open.Didymaotus lapidiformis is pollinated by moths and specialized bees. The flower opens fully from noon onwards. Like all mesembs, it has hygrochastic capsules. This means the capsule opens when wet, allowing seeds to be dispersed by rain droplets. When the capsule is dry, it closes again, thus preserving what's left of its seeds for another rainy day!
