  • Botanical Name: Portulacaria Afra
  • Common Names: Rainbow Elephant Bush
  • Description: The elephant bush is a common succulent native to South Africa. Cultivated as an ornamental plant, this plant is a great choice for any beginner succulent collector as it is very low maintenance and its dense bright green leaves are an essential look. The elephant bush has small, round pad-like leaves with thick reddish brown stems and can grow as a tree or a small shrub depending on your planting preferences. 
  • Rainbow Elephant Bush is usually grown indoors since it can grow laterally and hence take up a lot of space.

    Since plant thrives in the sun, they require a lot of sunlight to grow. If you’re increasing the plant indoors, make sure that you place it close to a window where it can receive maximum light.

    This plant needs over 5 hours of sunlight to grow properly, making sure that it can get the required time. If you live in a place without much sunlight, you will need to invest in a grow light. A grow light will also be helpful during the winter months, when the daylight may not be enough for your plant.

  • Like most succulents, watering Rainbow Elephant Bush depends upon the weather of the area you live in. Since they are native to areas that are dry and face droughts, they are fairly adapted to thrive in similar conditions. That said, you will still need to water them every 7 to 10 days, even if you’re in a hot and dry area. If the weather is cooler, watering them every 10 to 15 days should be enough.

    In humid locations, Rainbow Elephant Bush will not need much watering. Once every 2 or 3 weeks is enough. If it’s rainy, you will not need to water the plant at all.
