|CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT
We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant 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. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. 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.
Monadenium ellenbeckii caulopodium forms clusters of lime-green, rounded pencil stems with elongated, smooth tubercles towards the tip. Stems have light reddish-brown striations. Porous soil with adequate drainage. They prefer bright, filtered light and warmth. Monadenium ellenbeckii can grow to 1 yard tall with just a few branches. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch except in winter when they don't like moist soi. I do NOT water in winter and I keep under shade cloth in my greenhouse so they are a little warmer. Protect from frost.
