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. 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 they're elephants).


Size:About 20" tall and a pot size of 6".



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


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