We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
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: give
the roots opportunity to start reaching down for water. Check to see if the plant should be watered at that time of the year you purchase. Some don't get water in winter and some no 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 they will 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 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

Fockea multiflora grow in rocky areas on low hills or among rocks around the base of hills Fockea multiflora is a succulent climber with a swollen tuberous caudex, up to 50(-60) cm in diameter at the base with very long branches growing intertwined in all directions. The trunks are extremely diverse in shape. The plant contains an abundance of milk sap which is poisonous. With or without leaves in the flowering season. The leaves with white-felted lower faces are significant for this species. The leaves, fruit and seeds of F. multiflora are also much larger than those of any other Fockea species. F. multiflora is also unusual in that the inflorescences arise in large number on young growth.  Stems: Up to 10-15 m long, sprawling on ground or twisting around trees for support, rarely shrub-like, rather stout, sparsely leafy or leafless during flowering, pubescent on the young parts, basally with massive root-tuber. Tuber irregularly shaped, partly above-ground, mostly tapering into ascending twining stems to the thickness of an arm, bark brown, more or less smooth. Flowering branches 7-10 mm in diameter, fleshy, becoming woody, young tomentose.  Leaves: Tomentose on both sides, opposite, simple and entire,often densely clustered on short shoots. Stipules absent. Petiole 6-9 mm long; blade 20-60 mm long, 8-30 mm broad, ovate to elliptic, more or less acute, truncate or subcordate at the base, lower face white-felted with raised midrib.  Flowers bisexual, regular, 5-merous, short-hairy, sweetly scented, yellow to green. Sepals 3 mm long, lanceolate and pubescent. Corolla yellow to green glabrous on both sides or most minutely papillate (not pubescent) within. Tube campanulate 1.5-2.5 mm long. Corolla lobes 7-10 mm long, 2 mm broad, rotate, oblong, subacute, revolute along the margins outside glabrous, inside pubescent. Corona white. 20-toothed, besides the teeth within. Coronal tube 2-3 mm long, the 5 longer teeth 2-3 mm long, spirally coiled at the tips, each alternating with a group of 3 shorter recurved teeth 0.5-1 mm long; teeth within the tube 5, filiform, 1-2 mm long, with or without a very short or rudimentary tooth at about their middle on the dorsal side, adnate nearly to the top of the tube, forming 5 keels on the lower part of the latter. Anther-appendages large, inflated-oblong. Style with 2 rounded knobs at its apex.  Blooming season: Flowers comes numerous at the end dry season between August and October (or rarely in December).  Fruit (follicle): Usually single, fusiform, 10-22 cm long, 1.5-3 cm in diameter, smooth, many-seeded.  Seeds: Ovate, flattened, 10 mm long 7-8 mm broad, shortly winged.
