Its name derives from the Greek words “trichos” - "hair", and “diadema” - "crown", referring to the “crown” of hairy and white bristles with which the leaves of these plants are equipped. It has a very decorative tuberous root, ideal for making bonsai. Numerous long woody stems grow from the tuber, covered with a brown-greyish bark, on which small bluish-green cylindrical leaves grow, embellished with a hairy crown at the end. From autumn until spring, you can admire its beautiful carmine red flowers. The Trichodiadema bulbosum is very resistant, does not require any particular care - the characteristics that make this plant ideal for those, who want to try to create a bonsai even for the first time.

Plant care:

It likes very bright places, however, avoid direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 6 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once a month during autumn-winter and then suspend it completely.

A soil suitable for cacti is an optimal solution, even better if further mixed with pumice or lapilli.

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