Dioscorea elephantipes 8cm | Elephants Foot
Out of stock
This is Nelly, a Dioscorea elephantipes in an 8cm pot, sometimes known as Elephants Foot. This is a caudex based plant which sits exposed above its barky soil. She grows beautiful little stems that bloom with green-yellow flowers.
These plants are in different stages of growth so the plant you will receive may be in a different stage from that shown in our photos. We only send healthy plants!
You will receive one plant in an 8cm nursery pot.
Water around the pot edge and not directly on the caudex (bulb). Allow the soil to dry out a fair bit before watering again. She can handle most light conditions so you should manage to find a perfect spot for her.
Plant Pro Tip
Nelly sometimes does her own thing, and may become dormant or the vines dying off. If this happens store her somewhere dry and cool for a few weeks and then bring her back into the light and carry on watering again.
These plants are toxic to pets.
