   This member of the Geraniaceae might not been called Monsonia yet, but if F. Albers are right, it will be. It is found in Southern Namibia, growing in a well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The stems can grow to two and a half centimetre in diameter and the whole plant up to 30 centimetres high.

 This Monsonia/Sarocaulon was not discovered when F. Albers changed the Sarocaulons into Monsonias in 1996, but Colin C. Walker published this combination in CactusWorld 26(4):249, 2008.

This is a winter-grower.
