Elephant Bush


Elephant Bush
We're succers for a good succulent and this miniature variegated jade is really floating our boat. Sculptural and sexy, this is the perfect addition to any indoor garden.
LIGHT
Relatively low maintenance, Jade likes a sunny spot, think windowsills - they'll tolerate direct light. A lack of light will leave this guy looking leggy and stretched.
WATER
They grow in well drained soil, and do not like sitting in a puddle of their own water. Water once every couple of weeks in the warmer months, lessening to once a month in winter.
MAINTENANCE
Fertilise in late winter to early spring with a diluted organic fetilizer. Watch for pests like whitefly, spider mites and mealybugs. Like most succulents this bad boy will propagate like a boss.
THE FOLIAGE IS EDIBLE - AND IS COMMONLY EATEN IN SOUTHERN AFRICA, USUALLY IN SALADS OR SOUPS FOR SOURNESS
