Stephania erecta - Live Plant
This variant is currently sold out
Best things about this plant are... the very different look of the caudex bulbs and the elegant, delicate stems and foliage that grow above the bulb

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. 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.
Container Size: The plants pictured here were photographed on December 17, 2020, and are exactly what you will get. These are in 3.25" pots. As can be seen in the photos, these are bulbs emerging from dormancy with green shoots developing. Although potted, Stephania erecta often does not have roots growing into the soil at time of purchase - this is normal.
