Product info

The African plant, the Monadenium rubellum looks special. Because its base consists of a large, rounded tuber or of several smaller tubers. This tuber is also called ‘caudex’ and serves as a depository of nutrition and water for the plant. Stalks with thick, green leaves develop from the tip of the tuber. In the flowering season the Monadenium rubellum produces beautiful pink flowers on the end of its stalks. This species is easy to care for and will flourish indoors or at the office. This Araflora plant can grow to about 30 centimetres high.

Plant care

The exotic plant, the Monadenium rubellum prefers a spot in the lightor half shadow. Water the plant sufficiently in the flowering season, so that the soil is always somewhat moist. Do not worry if you forget to water the plant once in a while: the Monadenium rubellum can easily tolerate periods of drought, because of water-reserves in its tuber[s]. In winter, when the plant drops its leaves and flowers, it only needs very little water. The soil should then be allowed to dry out completely in between two watering sessions, so that the roots will not rot. The temperature suitable for the Monadenium rubellum should be between 10° Celsius [ 50° F ] and 35° Celsius [ 95° F ]. The potting soil for this species must be thoroughly permeable and may consist partly of sand. Araflora sells all kinds of soil-mixes for tropical plants.
