Jatropha podagrica Compacta (Buddha Belly Plant)
€12.95 “Price excl. VAT: €11.41”
This distinctive plant forms a swollen, fleshy stem, which is topped during the warmer months with a crown of gently ruffled deep green leaves. In good conditions, the plant may also produce an upright stalk, topped with a cluster of small orange flowers – followed by near-black berries.
Water regularly during the summer, but never leave it sitting in water for any length of time, and let the compost get quite dry before watering again. In autumn, cut back on the water, and water only rarely in winter, when the plant goes into its dormant phase and sheds its leaves. Maintain temperatures above 12°C and avoid placing too close to radiators.
Supplied in a 13cm pot
