Easily identifiable by the delicate round shape of its leaves, the Stephania Erecta has taken social media by storm all over the pages of Instagram and Pinterest due to its unique aesthetic appeal. Its features appear almost cartoon-like, with its leaves being able to reach up to 30cm in diameter in nature!


Originating from Thailand, the Stephania Erecta thrives well in sunny and warm climates such as Singapore and will make a unique addition to your growing garden. Sprouting from a large woody cautex that actually serves as a storage point for water, it can go for long periods of time without water. If you tend to it long enough, you may just witness the sprouting of its beautiful yellow flowers.


Here are some pointers on how to care for the Stephania Erecta:

  • Keep soil well drained
  • Indirect sunlight
  • Water weekly (Add enough water to keep soil moist!)
