Avonia quinaria

An absolutely adorable miniature caudiciform. This species is hardly found in cultivation! Native to parts of South Africa, these are a VERY slow grower. It can take several decades to grow a few centimeters in diameter! Because of this, these may be roughly the same size throughout most of it's life. It has very short branches that can form purple/pink flowers in the spring and summer under the right growing conditions.

Care:

These will do best when given a bright light like a cacti would. They do not need full direct sun, but a bright dappled sun will do nicely. As with most Caudiciforms, they will need to fully dry out in the soil between waterings. We end up watering ours only once a month! They store a lot of water in their bases! These will not develop a deep root system so be sure to pick a small shallow pot when re-potting. They will like to be in a coarse cacti soil medium that will drain water well. We would recommend avoiding watering during the winter as they will go dormant during the winter.
