Item details

This is a very slow growing plant. After some years, the roots can be raised to create an unusual succulent bonsai. This means you will need to scrape away the soil to expose the enlarged tuberous root.
It has violet to purple-red flowers with a yellow center and blooms from spring to fall.
Likes a part-shade position (some early or late sun) but is quite tolerant to full sun and intense heat. Requires a well-drained soil.
The roots of the Trichodiadema species have been used in the past for speeding the fermentation of bread and beer. It is presumed they contain yeast or sugars which increase the rate of fermentation.
