Last year this large Conophytum looked far more dormant. Very little green was showing and the papery husks completely covered the plants. It looks like it has reproduced quite a bit though which is always good news. Last year it bloomed quite a bit after being watered so hopefully it will again this year. This is how it looks October 29, 2011 and it was watered the next day. Last year the first flowers started opening up about 23 days after it was watered.
