Growing Portulacaria Afra Bonsai from Seed or By Propagation
The elephant bush bonsai can be grown from seed or by propagation. However, it’s easiest to grow from cuttings that are propagated in the summer.
Keeping this in consideration, does elephant bush grow fast?
Although elephant bush is very drought tolerant it grows more quickly and the foliage is lusher with adequate water.
Secondly, how do you care for an elephant Bush bonsai?
They are drought tolerant but do require watering from spring to fall. In winter, the plants are dormant, and you may suspend watering. Elephant Bush plants in the home interior should not have consistently wet feet. Make sure the pot drains well and does not leave a saucer with water sitting under the container.
