Stephania erecta - Live Plant
This item is currently on back order....
We are currently taking pre-orders for this unusual houseplant, for pick-up/shipping April onwards. Due to the popularity of this variety, we are opening up pre-orders early so that you don't miss out!
Container Size for April 2020: 3.5" pot / semi-dormant bulbs that have been prepared for sprouting. Very similar to those pictured. These typically have an emerging flower shoot, but may not be rooted in the soil. Stephania are very slow to develop, but these are alive and well and ready to grow-up for you.
Details: These little darlings are very, very cool. The plant develops a flower stem followed by architectural leafy stems, all growing from the "potato-like" above-ground caudex! Stephania erecta thrives on warmth, humidity and low light, and we have our in-store plants displayed in tall mason jars to create a mini terrarium environment for them. At home, you can grow them up in the mason jar or transfer to a well-draining pot - but remember they do like their humidity. Water the soil sparingly, but perhaps keep your plant in an enclosure or near a regular source of humidity. Since Stephania erecta has many reserves stored up in its caudex you do not need to fertilize initially; however, we do recommend fertilizing with Evolve Organic All-Purpose monthly once your plant has put on true leaves.
These plants develop slowly over months, and our plants are currently at the stage where they display their initial flower stem. You can expect the leafy growth to develop over the next couple of months and roots may not develop from the bottom of the caudex for several more months.
Pre-order Info: Once your order is confirmed we will hold this plant for local pickup on or after the specified pickup date. If you are not able to come to us we can hold your plant for shipping once weather permits, which at this point will be spring 2020.
Shipping Info: We ship live plants via Canada Post Expedited parcel to all locations within Canada. Shipping from Winnipeg takes 2 - 4 days to most areas in BC, AB, SK, MB and ON. Orders going to most locations in QC, NB and NS take 4 days while other parts of Canada and remote destinations can take 5 or more days.
