Portulacaria afra

Portulacaria afra
the Elephant's Food

Can easily be grown as a houseplant with adequate bright light. Drought tolerant. Chronic over watering can kill the plant. But do let the soil dry out. Fertilize at one-third strength during the growing season. Prune by pinching or cutting above a pair of pads.
Here outdoors with overhead protection is full sun in more northern locations.

Easy care succulent from South Africa.

Can go for several years without repotting.
