Rhombophyllum dolabriforme Elkhorn Plant

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Rhombophyllum Dolabriforme goes by the common name “Elkhorn Plant” or “Hatchet Plant”. This semi-shaped succulent is from South Africa and the Aizoaceae family. Hatchet Plant is winter dormant and can take up 30 centimeters of height.

Growth Rate

Hatchet Plant is a slow grower. Growing out into a densely branched plant takes time and requires sufficient nurturing throughout the year.

Flowering

Its golden yellow flowers appear in the spring and summer seasons. The beauty of the flowers is further enhanced by a slight red hint of color on the back. 

Watering and Feeding

The succulent requires ample amounts of water, but only when the soil gets dry. They can be watered once every 2-4 weeks in winter. Even though they do not necessarily need fertilizing, a cactus or liquid fertilizer once a month during the spring and summer season is recommended.

Soil

An excellent drainage system is essential to these plants. Prepare a soil mix using less organic material and extra perlite or pumice.

Hardiness

Rhombophyllum Dolabriforme grows best in the spring and summer seasons, the frost tolerance of this elegant succulent ranges anywhere from 1.7° C (35° F) to 10° C (50° F). Furthermore,  10b to 11b is the hardiness zone of the Elkhorn plant. 

Light

The plant prefers full sun, with some shade in the hottest months of summer. Rhombophyllum Dolabriforme requires bright sunlight in winter.

Propagation

You can propagate these succulents through cuttings. Be sure to dry out the cuttings before you plant them in well-drained and gritty soil.

Rhombophyllum Dolabriforme is a sight for sore eyes since when the plant starts blooming, its beautiful flowers grow in the afternoon sunlight and you get to witness this every day, beginning mid-spring!

LOVE it!

My experience was excellent! My little plant was packaged extremely well, with pebbles on top so the soil wouldn't fall out. Very little, if any, stress from shipping, and believe it or not, there's already a flower starting to shoot up!! I can't wait to stop by again.
