Bonsai of Portulaca afra (Spekboom).

Towerkop Nursery

Indigenous to South Africa this species has been found to extract the most carbon from the air for any tree it’s size. It is found on rocky slopes in arid conditions and flowers in extreme drought conditions.

It is a popular bonsai subject because of it’s caudiciform (tree trunk-like) appearance. Pictured is a variegated type.

I want it to lean over almost horizontally so I used crutch-shaped sticks to prop it up.
