Portulacaria afra is a shrubby African succulent which makes an excellent Bonsai for beginners! Unlike most Bonsai which need regular and careful watering, this tough little plant will cope perfectly well if you forget for a few days. The small, rounded fleshy leaves store water to keep it going during dry periods. Over time, it produces a woody stem, giving a fabulous tree-like appearance. This tough and reliable plant is ideal for a sunny windowsill. Supplied with a ceramic pot and saucer (colour may vary). Height and spread: 30cm (12").
Please note: These trees have been carefully trained to create perfect miniatures of their full size siblings. Although many of the species used are perfectly hardy in the UK, these tiny trees are more susceptible to winter damage, given their size and the small volume of soil surrounding their roots. Therefore they are best protected from frost and cold winter weather by moving them to a cool, bright spot in the home or greenhouse.
