|We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.|
Cyphostemma juttae, native to Namibia, forms an interesting caudiciform shape with a thick, conical caudex. Trunk has peeling bark and is topped with gray-green succulent leaves that are very serrated along the margins. This plant, is known as "Basterkobas" in its native habitat, and is in the Grape Family, Vitaceae. Forms red, non-edible "grapes" after flowering. Can grow to 5' or more in time. Grows faster if planted directly in the ground. Excellent in the landscape or as a patio plant. Also can create a very desireable bonsai with the proper pruning. Can tolerate intense light and some frost. Porous soil with excellent drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost to prevent possible scarring.
