The photos are representative, you will receive plants that look similar, but not identical to these images. 

Native to South Africa, the P. Afra - aka Elephant Bush, or "spekboom" gets its name because it's a favorite food of African Elephants. It's a succulent-type plant similar to jade, but with smaller, bright green shiny leaves which are edible.

We recommend that you fertilize regularly, and place your miniature jade in a sunny warm location. It can grow indoors or outdoors in any bright location, but be sure to protect it from freezing temperatures.
