IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are usually
no issues with a plants out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
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.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of 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 plants look like when grown.
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

Trichodiadema bulbosum

 

The genus Trichodiadema is part of the family Aizoaceae (synonymous with Mesembryanthemaceae), which also includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Trichodiadema bulbosum, native to South Africa, forms very succulent shrublets with deep emerald leaves that have a "crystalline" texture and tufty bristles at the the tips. The stems branch heavily to produce a small shrub with roots that thicken in time to form caudex-like tubers. These tubers can be raised above the soil line to create a gnarly "caudiciform" effect, thereby making this plant an excellent subject for bonsai. Trim tips occasionally for best bonsai appearance. The cuttings can be planted and rooted to create new plants. Profuse intense majenta flowers in spring and summer. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. Prefers bright light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Can tolerate some frost, but best if is given frost protection to avoid scarring. The roots get thick and produce caudex-like tubers. In spring and summner they produce small purple flowers. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. They like bright light and airflow. Water thoroughly and allow to dry out between watering. Trichodiadema tolerate some frost, but really do best if they are protected from frost. I like the way the tubers look above the soil line. They get really gnarly. In spring and summner they produce small purple flowers. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. I have always grown my personal plants outdoors and only when really cold do I bring indoors. They like bright light and airflow. Cutback watering in winter. Trichodiadema tolerate some frost, but really do best if they are protected from frost.
