      DESCRIPTION
      Operculicarya Pachypus:

      DESCRIPTION: Operculicarya pachypus, native to southwestern Madagascar, is a small, deciduous, pachycaul tree. It tends to stay compact, with the trunk growing in a conical shape and looks like an odd bonsai tree. The branches are glabrous, zigzagged, and its roots often swell to form unique, and twisted design. The green leaves are very tiny, which work proportionately for that bonsai look. The flowers are small, yellow-green, and appear in late winter. This plant is quite a strong plant. It is grown in harsh conditions, it is a relatively adaptable species. The plant is drought tolerant and does well in full sun. It cannot tolerate freezing conditions.

      HOW TO GROW: It does not need a lot of water, but during growing season, it can enjoy a lot of water. Water it a bit regularly in a container. Its roots will swell underneath the soil, and you will only know that is the case when you repot the plant. Like most caudiciforms, this plant enjoys a fast-draining potting soil. Avoid peat if possible, and amend the soil with drainage material such as pumice, expanded shale, perlite, or a similar product. In cold winters, the plant will be more or less deciduous, but will remain evergreen in warmer locations. Avoid watering during periods of dormancy.

      FLOWERS: Yellowish green.
