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. Water the growing medium sparingly, but perhaps keep your plant in an enclosure or near a regular source of humidity. Common mixes used for this plant include LECA, pumice, or vermiculite. 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. It is common to see a flower stem develop before leaves.
