We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
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.

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.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

We Update Weekly, always something to do on our website

Fockea edulis

Fockea edulis, native to South Africa, is a member of Asclepiadaceae, which includes Stapelia, Hoya, Ceropegia and many other genera. This is a caudiciform which will form a turnip-shaped caudex with gnarly, thickened roots wrapped around the base of the caudex. With many years, this caudex can grow to 30" in diameter. Crinkly leaves to 1" in length produced along vining canopy. This is a vining plant which loves to travel many feet if allowed the chance; will climb shrubs and even small trees. The more square inches of green material on top (the vining part used for photosynthesis), the faster the caudex below will grow. Pale green star-shaped flowers are produced in the summer months and are pollinated by flies. Porous soil with excellent drainage. Prefers bright shade or filtered sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, but water very little during deciduous winter months. Protect from frost.
