Portia

$35

Elephant Bush
Portulacaria afra

Hailing from South Africa, her thick reddish brown succulent stems and tiny green leaves set her apart. In the wild, she is a popular snack for elephants. Portia grows much faster than her buddy Jade. In the right conditions, she can bloom small pink flowers that grow in clusters.

Sunlight:Bright indirect light mixed with direct exposure is ideal.


Water:Every 2-3 weeks. Allow soil to dry out completely.


Pets:Loves pets. Unless your pet is an elephant.


Humidity:A spritz here and there won't hurt.


Travel:That two week safari in South Africa is looking good.


Pro-tip: Portia goes dormant in colder months, so you can slow watering down to once a month.

Medium: Around 20 inches tall with a container width of 6.5 inches.

Sizes will vary.
