Solanum sp. White Stripe


Beautiful small Solanum species whose leaves only reach about 1/4 inch.  It likes to be kept on the drier side and will melt if kept too wet.  Once established it has a nice rate of growth, but for a Solanum it’s very slow.  The leaves are a dark purpley-green, and each leaf has a distinctive white stripe down the center.

*disclosure on solanum shipping- in my experience receiving and sending many Solanum species, they are notorious poor shippers, and tend to drop most if not all their leaves every time.  It has also been my experience that they reliably bounce back after a relatively short period of time.  Their stems are very resilient, their leaves, not as much.  If you order this plant, please be aware that I do not guarantee Solanum species to be ‘fully clothed’ upon arrival.  I do guarantee that your stem arrives intact (ie not melted or black).  This white striped variety prefers potting soil kept on the dry side, in bright light.

The plant available is approximately 6-8″ with aerial roots.
