Caralluma Speciose belongs to the Apocynaceae family. With its origin in East Africa, the plant is cup-shaped and can grow up to 2 feet tall. It offers a dormancy of winters and even with minimal care, it grows into a healthy plant.

Growth Rate

Most people prefer to buy the succulent not because of its slow-growing nature but because of how neat its form and shape are.

Flowering

The flowers blossom in the summer and are brownish purple or greenish yellow. They appear at the base of the shoots and are 2-3cm in diameter.

Watering and Feeding

No watering is required in December and January. Otherwise, water about every 20 to 28 days with two glasses per watering session. Once a month, feed the plant with a fertilizer for cacti, diluted twice.

Soil

Light, porous, and good quality are the three things required by Caralluma Speciose. Since it absorbs water quickly, use claystone or store-bought soil for cacti and succulents.

Hardiness

While freezing temperatures are fatal, Caralluma Speciose has a frost tolerance of 10° C. It can stand nighttime temperatures of about 5° C.

Light

While the plant prefers light, it thrives in indirect sunlight. Either place them outdoors with partial shade or indoors where there is a lot of light. Do not keep them right next to the window since they might burn.

Propagation

The easiest method of propagation is through division. The process should take place between May to July for the best results.

Keep in mind that it is not as difficult to grow the Caralluma Speciose as all other planters. All you have to do is provide good ventilation throughout its journey.
