Orbea conjuncta is a sprawling stem succulent that branches. The procumbent stems are grey-green with scattered blotches and line markings in purple to brown. Longitudinal stem ridges and large teeth or tubercles are spaced upon the stems. These curving, conical tubercles are up to 2 mm long and 1,6 cm apart. The stems become 15 cm long and 8 mm thick.
The plant is a South African endemic, distributed in Limpopo in a small area near the Soutpansberg and the Blouberg. The species is not considered to be threatened in its habitat early in the twenty first century.
An earlier name for this plant was Orbeanthus conjunctus; before that it was known as Stultitia conjuncta (www.llifle.com; www.redlist.sanbi.org).
