If you are experiencing freezing temperatures, please let us know.
We can hold your order until it is a better time to ship.

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

Mestoklema arboriforme & tuberosa

Mestoklema arboriforme is a shrubby mesemb growing to 18-24 inches tall from the arid northern Cape of South Africa and into Namibia. Develops a miniature tree-like habit with a gnarled caudex that has smooth red bark; makes a very showy container plant, especially once the tuberous roots develop. Grow with tuberous roots in soil to develop size, then lift plant and replant with roots exposed. Keep twiggy stems trimmed for best look. The small yellow-orange flowers appear in spring. Very dry growing. Plant is full sun or bright shade. Is cold tolerant to at least the low 20s° F. There are differing opinions on whether the plants generally found in cultivation are M. tuberosa or M. arboriforme. Both have yellow to orange flowers and the description of these two in Jacobsen is vague enough that it could be either. photo is on left
Mestoklema tuberosa-Mestoklema tuberosa is a member of the Aizoaceae family. It was given this name by Nicholas Edward Brown in 1981. It is found on the Eastern Cape Province of the Republic of South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little water and lots of sun. The swollen roots, each four centimetres in diameter will form clusters up to 20 centimetres in diameter. The plant can grow to 60 centimetres in height. The flowers are reddish, pink or salmon, and the plant can be reproduced both by seeds and cuttings. photo is on right
