Trichodiadema densum “Spiny African Bonsai”

Size
  • Also known as ‘African Bonsai’ or ‘Miniature Desert Rose’. Trichodiadema densum is not a cactus, but it is usually mistaken for one because of the leaf structure. The green leaves can grow up to 0.8 inch long and their tips have white hairs. It will grow a caudex trunk over time and form a perfect little bonsai tree. With the right care, the flowers will appear from autumn through to spring.

     All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Full sun, sun to partial shade, light shadewith ample airflow

    Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage holes are recommended. So if you don't got one good pot, buying our plants with pot option isn't a bad idea.

      Water whenever the soil is dry several inches below the surface. Water deeply, but don't let them sit in wet soil, which can cause root rot.

  • 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.
