My Trochomeria macrocarpa hasn’t gotten much attention at all compared to my Ibervillea. They were practically brothers and even germinated on the same grow rack right next to each other. I completely forget about it and it ends up staying bone dry for weeks until I water again. Luckily, caudiciforms can handle that kind of treatment because of their large caudex, in which they store water for dry seasons and forgetful plant moms. My forgetfulness hasn’t prevented it from thriving and putting on a show with lots of new growth.

I love to paint plants/nature and grow succulents and houseplants in my apartment. This is a blog about exactly that.
