Fockea Edulis - Hottentot Bread 130mm (50% quality) - The Jungle Collective

Fockea Edulis – Hottentot Bread 130mm (50% quality)


Fockea edulis (Hottentot Bread) A thin vining semi-evergreen plant that can grow stems 10 feet long or more, arising from large (to 2 feet wide) succulent tuberous roots that are twisted and gray colored with wart-like bumps called tubercules. The stems are leafy, with 1/2 to 1 inch long gray-green oval leaves, will climb up on any available support and will lose some leaves in winter but rarely goes completely leafless. This plant is dioecious, with male and female flowers on separate plants. The flowers usually appear in summer have thick narrow green calyces and white petals and appendages with 2 inch long gray-green fruit forming on pollinated female plants. Grow in full sun (when caudex is buried) to light shade and in a well-drained soil and irrigate occasionally to infrequently. Can be grown in the ground but this plant is usually seen as an attractive potted specimen that is quite tolerant of going quite dry between watering but watch that the base does not shrivel and keep the elevated caudex partially shaded in summer. Hardy to light frost and short duration temperatures down to around 25°F. This is a great caudiciform forming plant to elevate for display in a nice shallow pot. In the wild, the caudex is partially or totally buried and tends to grow faster this way. Succulent growers will often keep their plant buried deep in plastic pots until the roots deform or even split the pots, letting the grower know it is time to repot or elevate the tuberous root for display.

– Please ensure the address you have nominated can accept deliveries on the weekend and during the week including holidays. We are not able to facilitate only weekend and only weekday deliveries.
– We are also not able to update with ETA on timings other than the above delivery window, as this does become quite hard for us to manage expectations.

We will do our best when packing but please allow for some leaf damage during transportation due to packaging or climate change. If your plant looks like it has wilted during transit, we recommend giving it some water right away – this should help it to recover and settle in or reach out to our horticulturalists on Facebook for more help.
