Growth Report: Tylecodon Cacalioides

 Tylecodon Cacalioides (or walichii) was also part of the May order from succulent tissue culture. Quite frankly I thought this plant had died. Late in summer it dropped all its succulent leaves and I decided to keep it dry and hope for the best. As you can see it is still alive and has pushed out some new leaves. I am rather happy because although I managed to propagate a new plant from a fallen leaf I accidently dried it out. I'm a bit stumped as how to treat the plant now since it has started a flush of new growth. I think I'm to let it grow if it wants to. Has it grown much? No, but I sure am happy it is alive.
