Stephania erecta is a unique and sought-after plant known for its intriguing appearance and relatively easy care requirements. The bulb, often referred to as a caudex, is round and can vary in size. When sprouted, it produces delicate, vine-like stems with round, coin-shaped leaves. It is a climbing plant, typically grown indoors as a decorative houseplant. The vines can reach several feet in length.

Planting the Bulb

Orientation: Ensure the bulb is planted with the flat side down and the pointed side up. If the orientation is not clear, planting it sideways can also work, as the plant will find its way.

Soil: Use well-draining soil, such as a cactus or succulent mix. You can mix it with some perlite for added drainage.

Depth: Place the bulb just below the surface of the soil, with the top slightly exposed.

Watering: Initially, water sparingly until growth begins. Overwatering can lead to rot. Once growth starts, maintain a regular watering schedule, allowing the soil to dry out slightly between waterings.

Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can hinder growth.

Temperature and Humidity: Stephania erecta prefers warm temperatures and moderate humidity. Protect it from drafts and cold temperatures.

Fertilizing: During the growing season (spring and summer), you can fertilize monthly with a balanced, diluted fertilizer.

Dormancy: In winter, the plant may go dormant, where it will lose its leaves. During this period, reduce watering significantly and keep it in a cooler area.
