H. floccosa is dark green species, it belongs to the bolusii group of plants. Differences are the colour of the leaves - it is more darker and thinner, almost without any translucent areas. Spination is much softer. It is one of the 'new' species described by Hayashi. It remains solitary.

Distribution map

H. floccosa grows well protected under the bushes or between stones. It is growing near Lithops localis and H. glauca. The distribution area is NE. Fullarton (NE. Willowmore) - that´s very far SW from Graaff-Reinet where H. bolusii occurs.  Recently was discovered a new population few km to the North closer to Miller in Swanepoelspoort. In this locality it grows together with H. decipiens var. minor, which is not common.

In cultivation it is not difficult plant, just keep more in shade. Propagation must by done by seed.
