Tylecodon schaeferianus The smallest member of this unusual group of winter growing succulent perennials. It makes chubby, rounded green leaves on short branching stems. Tylecodons are winter growers, meaning they need good light & water in the fall through spring, then allowed to go dormant in the summer. In the summer it may drop many or all leaves. They then produce pink flowers in late summer or early fall. A little water once a month or so in the summer is fine, but if you keep it wet then it will rot. Protect from frost.
Plants vary in appearance across the year. They look like sticks in the summer when dormant. In late summer/early fall they flower. Shortly after they leaf out. That is why the pictures look different.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image. Plants shown in a 3.5" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
