Portulacaria Afra Decumbent also called Elephant Bush is very widespread in the east of South Africa. Small, round, apple green leaves stand out against flexible red stems. It reaches a height of between 2.5 and 4.5 meters. The Elephant Bush name comes from the fact that it serves as food for elephants in its native environment.
Watering: To grow a strong root system, drench deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole of the container. Allow soil to completely dry out before watering again. Reduce watering frequency in winter.
Light: They are accustomed to sunny conditions in their native habitats, but they can tolerate indoor growing if kept in a sunny room.
