  • This listing features our rare and beautiful rooted Portulaca molokiniensis or also known as 'ihi succulent'. It is an upright growing succulent that grows basal branches to form a small shrub up to 12 inches (30 cm) tall. The stems are round and corky, bearing round grey-green succulent leaves that are arranged neatly in 4 distinct rows towards the branch tips.

    Portulaca molokiniensis produces clusters of tiny lemon yellow cup-shaped flowers at the ends of leafless stems that rise above the foliage.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.
  • Sand, Cinder. Porous and well-drained.

    Full Sun.

    Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. Avoid letting water sit for too long in the soil to prevent rot and fungal diseases.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
