The ideal soil for Conophytum herreanthus succulents is a well-draining, gritty mix. It should contain a combination of coarse sand, pumice, and/or perlite to ensure good drainage. The soil should also be slightly acidic with a pH between 5.5 and 6.5. Adding some organic matter like compost or aged manure can help keep the soil moist without becoming soggy.
The Conophytum herreanthus succulent is a low-maintenance plant that requires minimal watering.
