Portulacaria (Variegated)


From the name, it is clear, that this succulent has many characteristics, that link it to the Portulaca genus. It is particularly appreciated for its stem, which becomes woody, as it  grows, of a characteristic purplish color, on which small and graceful fleshy and very shiny leaves are born, of various shapes, depending on the species. In their homeland, these plants reach up to three meters in height and are commonly used to feed elephants; for us, however, its diffusion in pots as bonsai is renowned: a valid expedient to bring a bit of Africa to your house!
