Hedera helix Gnome Plectranthus Ernstii Caudex, Bonsai Mint features a large, attractive succulent “trunk” and small, fuzzy, pleasantly spice-scented green leaves. Native to South Africa, this plant is new to most Bonsai collections, but it has become very popular. A relatively fast grower. Consider this one for pots, rock gardens, and fairy gardens and as a bonsai tree.
The plant’s stems are greyish and succulent but turn brown over time. In the summer through the fall, expect small spikes of lavender-white flowers. For best results, provide bright, indirect light to full sun. Allow soil to dry out before watering, and water slightly less during the winter dormancy period.
Note: Comes with a small bag containing fine pebbles that is ready to apply to the surface of the bonsai pot.
Saucer is included.
