Monilaria obconica Photo by: Cactus Art
The small glittering pearls on the leaves are special water storage cells rich in sugars characteristic of succulents, in Monilaria these cells may be ½ a mm in diameter and can retain their moisture for weeks when separated and exposed to dry air. It is a very interesting and easily flowered plant with brilliant green spaghetti leaves.
