According to the SANBI Red List Assessment, this species is Rare as it is known from six subpopulations and is not thought to be threatened due to its inaccessibility of habitat to agriculture (Snijman & Victor, 2004). Plants of this genus were among those targeted and/or confiscated during recent criminal prosecutions of illegal plant collecting. This suggests that this genus may be targeted and that rare species may be at risk to over-exploitation.
