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

Othonna euphorbiodes

In the warmer months Othonnas go into their dormancy period, stop watering, place them in a shaded, cooler area of the greenhouse, away from getting direct sunlight and with good air circulation, relatively dry. In the fall, sometime around early to mid october when nights cool down, the plants may start growing on their own, but a good soaking will help them to leaf out. Othonna euphorbioides is a familiar species in cultivation and is also one of the easier species to cultivate. It occurs on the vast granite domes of central and northern Namaqualand. It grows in rocky fissures in very exposed situations. In its local habitat, from May to August, when plants grow, the weather is cold, and temperatures sometimes dip below 32 F. A typical succulent soil mix should be suitable for growing othonnas but additional drainage material would be recommended Othonna euphorbioides a member of the Asteraceae family was given this name by John Hutchinson in 1917. It is found in western South Africa, growing in grit or other well drained soil with little to some water and lots of sun. The stem can grow up to approximately 5" in diameter, and reach 12" in height. The flower are bright yellow. Othonna euphorbioides are winter growers. The photo on left is a very old and mature plant.
