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

Massonia pustulata

The genus Massonia is endemic to southern Africa. They inhabit areas that are hot and dry during the summer and are adapted to a mediterranean climate - winter growing and summer dormant. Massonia pustulata is native to Cape provinces and Namaqualand. Due to its relatively small size, Massonia pustulata makes an excellent pot subject, many authorities suggest. The flowers are produced as sessile umbels and have stamens which are longer than the perianth, giving the flower head a 'shaving-brush' appearance (Massonia pustulata has the longest filaments of the more commonly grown species). The flowers can be creamy-white in some forms or a rather attractive pinkish colour in selected forms. This species, although not alone in this feature, has the specific name 'pustulata' due to the high number of small swellings similar to blisters or pimples on the surface of the leaves. There are also some attractive leaf forms in cultivation.
