SKU: Trichodiadema bulbosum Category: Tags: ,


This tiny tree, aka African Bonsai is native to Western and Eastern Cape Provinces of the Republic of South Africa. A slow-growing caudiciform bonsai-like succulent with long wiry stems, it forms a rounded shrub 30-60cm tall. Its flowers are violet to purple-red with a yellow centre and its leaves are cylindrical green and grey featuring a white bristle crown (the genus name being “trichodiadema”, meaning threaded crown). Known for its impressive fat caudex, a mature plant can be trained to have its roots raised for added dramatic effect.

This plant likes partial shade and is fairly heat and sun tolerant. Easily grown in a well-drained pot indoors or outdoors (protect from winter rain). Water regularly in warm months and allow to dry between watering; water less frequently in winter.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.


All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.


Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
