Due to new regulations starting from Jan. 2013, quarantine certification and treatment will be required for all plants sent to Northern Territory (Treatment fee :- 15.00 per parcel as it has been for W.A. and Tas).

 Dioscorea elephantipes "Elephant's foot"



The plant/s supplied will be similar to the plants in 2nd photo, growing in 90mm plastic pot/s. Plants sent will have caudex submerged below the soil as they prefer to be burried for the first two years, these plants were grown from seed planted in December 2011. When re-potting after the growing season which ends in late spring the caudex can be raised, caudex will mature faster underground. It will be sent potted.

Note: These plants are dormant from Sept to January, by mid February most will have shoots and late March they should have good foliage.  Plants sent from February to September may be cut back as foliage is to large for packing, they will quickly regrow or if purchased from June will go into dormancy until the following March.


Description and growing tips:

It is one of the most unusual, weird and wonderful, caudiciform plants around! It has a deeply fissured surface, resembling an elephant's foot. It makes a most interesting container plant.

This plant is a winter grower with a thick quick growing vine during the colder months in colder regions. It will lose all its vine and remain dormant during the summer months, exposing its swollen base.  They can easily be grown outdoors in cold climates.


Note: Quarantine charges of $15 apply to each shipment to W.A. N.T. and Tasmania. This is for treatment and documentation. Orders to WA and Tasmania can take an extra 1 to 2 weeks to process. Please do not complete checkout, we will finish this and add the charge.
