'Hottentot Bread'

Fockea edulis

Native to South Africa and Namibia, these vines can grow to up to 4 metres in height in their native environment, whilst the caudex can reach a diameter of 60cm!!

Unlike many other caudiciform plants, such as the Stephania erecta, the edulis never goes totally dormant and will carry leaves all year round. This is also a tough little succulent that tolerates high levels of light and is drought tolerant.


8cm pot x 15 - 20cm height

Why Hutch selects me

A great little unusual addition to any sunny spot or windowsill you have!

How to look after me

Watering: When the soil has dried out; approximately once every 7-10 days

Light: Bright / Sunny

Why I'm unique

We work hard to provide a clear photograph and description of your chosen plant. However, all plants are unique and, whilst the pot size remains the same, there is always variation in size and shape from one plant to the next.
