International and unusual

Caudiciform succulents are an intriguing group of plants that occur all over the world.

Distinguished by their large aboveground caudex (stem-like trunk), caudiciforms occur anywhere from the forests of southeast Asia to the semi-desert regions of southern Africa. They are adapted to store water in their stems, which gives these plants quite unusual but attractive shapes.

As Living Desert Plants is based in South Africa, in this Shop category, we tend to focus on our local indigenous caudiciforms. You’ll most often see us selling things like Adenium, Avonia, Fockea, Pachypodium, and the ever popular Dioscorea (Elephant’s Foot). That’s not all we grow though! We occasionally have a few exotic caudiciforms, such as Stephania erecta and Sinningia leucotricha.
