The abbreviation of "affinis" preceding the name of the species means "close, similar", meaning that the plant can be considered a close relative of Tylecodon ventricosus. It is a shrubby succulent, slightly branched, which does not exceed 30 cm in height. It produces a thick and woody tuberous stem, partially underground, on the top of which lanceolate and glabrous leaves grow, they are up to 5 cm long, lance-shaped and slightly concave, of a color that can vary from glaucous green to brownish-green. In summer, when the plant begins to lose its leaves, beautiful tubular flowers appear, ranging in shades from yellowish to purplish-brown.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of brightness during all seasons and rather airy places.

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, once a month in autumn and to suspend watering completely in winter.

The best option is a soil suitable for cacti, 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.
