I love my little Elephant Bush! For someone who wants to brighten up their space but has a very poor record keeping plants alive, this plant is perfect! I’ve had my bush since it was only a couple inches tall and within a month or so both of the sprigs have nearly tripled in height

As a succulent, it doesn’t require much water, making it perfect for the summertime on my patio table here in Phoenix AZ! Puffy little jade shaped leaves. Love how this little fella trails down over the pot!!

It takes a while for leaves to grow but when they do they tell you exactly when it needs water :)

The need a lot of water and for this plant I notice it’s better to put water in a bowl and place the plant in and let it absorb what it needs

It got sick I think a couple months ago and it was pretty easy to fix. It’s a pretty harsh plant

Super cute and small. Needs a bit more sunlight than most succulents but still very manageable!

It’s a very cute succulent and it flourishes into a beautiful bush, hence its name. It also makes a great filler for succulent arrangements. I love that this guy is sooo easy to propagate!
