Item details

This is a Tylecodon paniculatus . It is native to South Africa. This Tylecodon is a winter grower and drops its leaves in the summer.

In habitat it gets quite large. It will not get this large in a pot. I have included two photos of mature plants so you can see what it looks like.

This is a photo of the exact plant you will receive.

This Tylecodon is in a 5" plastic pot. All of our plants are shipped bare root (carefully wrapped with no soil and no pot). We have a care sheet posted to give you tips on caring for succulents - contact me for a copy.


Feel free to repot it in one of your own pots, but do not use a pot much larger than 5" diameter. If you put a succulent in a pot that is too large, the soil will take too long to dry since there are not enough roots to absorb the water and your plant may get root rot.


What is the difference between an cactus and a succulent?
All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
Succulents are plants that store water in their stem, leaves or root system.
A true cactus has a structure called an areole. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, branches and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.

Average review
This little guy is so cool. When it first arrived it was really dry & shriveled- but after a good drink & a couple days in the sunny window & it looks perfect! Just like the picture. Recommend Tex Thrown Tex Grown! I’ve since purchased 2 more cool little trees from them.
