Sinningia Cooperi - Brazilian Caudex Succulent
This very unusual epiphytic plant from the rain forests of south america has a globular overground tuber, 6 to 10cm in diameter from which the fleshly slightly fuzzy leaves will grow during the spring and summer growing months on trailing stems. Bright red but short lived flowers will appear throughout the spring months on long trailing stalks.
In the winter period, the plant will loose its leaves and go dormant, until the next spring when a new set of leaves will appear.
Grows to a height of around 15 cm, but has trailing stems to around 30 cm or more.
Frost tender, keep above 10°C.
