  • Super easy to grow, Othonna capensis is a fast growing, trailing succulent with long brightly coloured purple stems. The fleshy green bean-like leaves take on the colour of the stems when exposed to bright sunlight. It blooms often with small, bright yellow, daisy like flowers.

    Othonna capensis is the perfect plant for hanging baskets or in pots placed high so the branches can trail downwards. A versatile plant that will grow indoors or out as long as it is given adequate light and its roots are not kept wet.
