Operculacaria decaryi is one of my all time favorite plants! This species originates from Madagascar. It is a natural bonsai tree! With very little trimming and attention you will have a great looking bonsai. These plants are grown from my own seed. Plants grown from cuttings will not exhibit the "exotic twisted" root structure as seed grown plants. The parent plants of this seed have very knobby trunks and fantastic swollen roots! As a result these seedling exhibit their parents traits. Care for these plants should be the same as for most trees. Make sure you have well drained soil and full to part sun for growing conditions. This is a must have plant!

I am most happy with this purchase. It arrived very fast, was packaged very well, and has been potted for a couple weeks now. It barely lost a leaf after the trip through the mail, and is already putting out new growth. Much larger than anticipated for the price!
