We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. 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 different paces 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

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.
