Portulacaria afra Decumbent

1 review
  • Portulacaria afra Decumbent is very widespread in the east of South Africa. Small, round, apple green leaves stand out against flexible red stems. It reaches a height of between 2.5 and 4.5 meters. The Elephant Bush name comes from the fact that it serves as food for elephants in its native environment.

    The flowers are grouped into inflorescences and appear in summer.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Portulacaria afra house plants thrive in bright light in a warm, draft-free room. Placing your plant to the brightest light possible in the house is ideal. 

    Water thoroughly only when soil is dry to the touch, then let drain completely. These plants are highly adapted to dry conditions and drought but they thrive when given sufficient water.

    Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage holes are recommended.

    Portulacaria afra is multiplied by seeds or, more frequently, by stem cuttings.
  • They are only hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 10 and 11.
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubble wrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety.

  • 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.
