Portulacaria afra (variegated form) aka the “Elephant Bush”, is a large, bushing succulent with woody stems that can grow to incredible heights when given the proper time, nutrients, and growing conditions although it is much more often kept as a small shrub-like succulent!
It can also be used in hanging baskets to create an informal 'trailing' houseplant.
.....and yes! Elephants really do eat this in the wild as a tasty snack (as well as Goats & Tortoises)
Grown in a 12cm Pot
