Trichodiadema bulbosum

 

The genus Trichodiadema is part of the family Aizoaceae (synonymous with Mesembryanthemaceae), which also includes the various forms of plants known as "Ice Plants" and those known as "Mimicry Plants". Trichodiadema bulbosum, native to South Africa, forms very succulent shrublets with deep emerald leaves that have a "crystalline" texture and tufty bristles at the the tips. The stems branch heavily to produce a small shrub with roots that thicken in time to form caudex-like tubers. These tubers can be raised above the soil line to create a gnarly "caudiciform" effect, thereby making this plant an excellent subject for bonsai. Trim tips occasionally for best bonsai appearance. The cuttings can be planted and rooted to create new plants. Profuse intense majenta flowers in spring and summer. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. Prefers bright light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Can tolerate some frost, but best if is given frost protection to avoid scarring. The roots get thick and produce caudex-like tubers. In spring and summner they produce small purple flowers. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. They like bright light and airflow. Water thoroughly and allow to dry out between watering. Trichodiadema tolerate some frost, but really do best if they are protected from frost. I like the way the tubers look above the soil line. They get really gnarly. In spring and summner they produce small purple flowers. Trichodiadema bulbosum is heat and drought dolerant. I have always grown my personal plants outdoors and only when really cold do I bring indoors. They like bright light and airflow. Cutback watering in winter. Trichodiadema tolerate some frost, but really do best if they are protected from frost.
