Petopentia natalensis, commonly known as the "zulu potato," is a perennial climbing plant native to Southern Africa. It belongs to the Apocynaceae family and is notable for its thick, tuberous roots, which are often used in traditional medicine.

We envision this piece to be placed on an entry console, coffee table, or on a pedestal.

Each plant will come with its own personalized care card, which will have instructions and some recommendations on how to best keep your plants in the condition they arrived. 

Cleaning Leaves: Be sure to remove any build up of dust or household debris. We recommend checking the leaves at least once a month. 

Fertilizer: Most houseplants can be fed with organic fertilizer during the active growing months of spring and summer for an extra boost. Liquid or slow release fertilizer are best for indoor plants. Watch for browning leaf tips as a sign of over-fertilizing. 

Repotting: Most plants won't mind being a little root bound, and some actually prefer it. Always use fresh soil when repotting your plants. Fast growing plants in smaller pots will need repotting every 12 months, and slow growing plants or larger specimens won't require a bigger pot more than every 18-24 months.

Always do research on questions specific to your plants, or reach out to us with any questions. This information is here to help get you started!
