Trichodiadema densum

(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).

Common names include Miniature desert rose and African bonsai.

Flowers: Abundant, opening only in sun on the morning, and closing in the afternoon, vivid pink to magenta-carmine, up to 5 cm in diameter.

Blooming season: Autumn to Spring. Mainly in late-winter.

Notes: Trichodiadema looks surprisingly like a cactus but is not a cactus. Its leaves are succulent and end in a circle of stiff hairs, giving the plant a similar appearance to some species in the cactus genus Mammillaria.

Cultivation and propagation: Likes a part-shade position (some early or late sun) but is quite tolerant as regards sun and intense heat. Growing in well-drained soil, it tolerates considerable frost a low as – 4°C (or less) and dry conditions due to its tuberous roots. This species is slow growing and after some years, the roots can be raised for effect, creating a beautiful succulent bonsai.
