Portulacaria afra – Elephant Bush

(1 customer review)


The Elephant bush  is a succulent shrub that can grow quite tall but is usually grown as a houseplant.

With its lovely pale fleshy leaves which are carried on dark red stems it makes a great addition to any home. It even flowers very pale pink flowers in summer.

15cm plastic hanging pot size


Likes plenty of bright sunlight and can tolerate full sun.  A south facing window will work the best but will also manage in a east or west facing one too.


Water deeply but very infrequently, don’t allow it to sit in any water as it will rot. During winter dormancy decrease watering even more.
