Stephania erecta

Stephania erecta


These unusal caudiciform plants are an interesting grower to have in your home. During it's active growing season (approx March to September) the plant produces beautiful vines of foliage. It may even reward you with small yellow flowers. 


Originally from Thailand, these plants have adapted to store copiuos amounts of water and nutrients in it's 'bulb' (or caudex). This helps when the plant begins to regrow after it's winter dormancy. Whilst the Stephania is in it's winter rest, it will drop is foliage and revert back to it's caudiciform. Whilst they are in their winter rest refrain from watering to avoid any rotting. 


Give your Stephania plenty of sunshine but it will also tolerate just bright light. Whilst it's in its growing season keep the soil slightly moist but still allowing the medium to dry out before watering again. Remember, they are storing nutrients in their caudex and can tolerate periods of drought. You want to avoid overwatering your plant. 


We recommend the Stephania for houseplant enthusiasts that have experience in growing caudiciform species. These Stephania come with a pot with potting medium but are unrooted. 


All plants are sold in their nursery pots. Decorative pots are sold seperately. You can choose your style pot from our Pot Collection. Do not pot directly into our decorative pots. It's much better for your plant to keep it in its nursery pot to allow adequate drainage.
