Description:

Operculicarya decaryi is named after the collector Raymond Decary. It is very popular among caudex lovers for its typical bonsai shape. It has very slow growth, rarely exceeding 5 meters in height. It consists of a woody, globular or conical trunk, which allows the plant to store considerable quantities of water, so much that in its native areas animals use it as a water source for survival. Just like a tree, numerous branches grow from the trunk. It can be easily recognized by its small round, green leaves, symmetrically arranged on the sides of the branches. During the flowering season, it blooms with small, dark red, inconspicuous flowers.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 15 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
