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

Pseudolithos Cubiformis


Pseudolithos cubiformis are members of Asclepiadaceae (Apocynaceae) (Milkweed family). They come from North East Somalia. In Habitat they have been found in grit in a dry tropical environment with lots of sun. These plants, like most of the succulent milkweeds (stapeliads), are generally fly pollinated, and conveniently smell like rotten meat or some type of manure.Pseudolithos derives from the Greek words pseudo meaning false and lithos meaning stone or pebble referring to the appearance of the stems. The species name migiurtinus derives from the mountain region in the North East of Somalia. Probably the most popular species of the genus in cultivation. It needs protection from cold and damp, but doesn't like to get bone dry, even in winter. Cultivation: Relatively easy to grow, but mistakes are costly. If rot sets in, there is practically no time, nor warning, before the plant turns to expensive mush. It needs regular watering, especially during the hottest summer days; provide also some light watering if the green house temperatures in winter are elevated. Either excessive or very scarce watering can induce rot. Frost Tolerance: Winter temperatures must be kept over 10° C. ( But it can withstand winter night-time temperatures down to about 5° Sun Exposure: It has a great advantage if grown in very strong light, but sheltered from full sun. Cultural Practices: Provide very good ventilation. It grows quite easily and fast on its own roots. It is not difficult as commonly supposed, but inaccuracies are fatal. If rot starts, the plant will almost inevitably die. This plant is a candidate for under-potting, as long as you keep it watered. Propagation: Seeds are the only way of reproducing.
