Once known as Portulacaria pygmaea, Gordon Rowley moved this species into the genus Ceraria in 1996. This miniature caudiciform forms a small shrub with small, rounded succulent leaves that are decidedly pear-shaped. From the Northern Cape Province of South Africa, this species is dioecious, forming flowers that are white to pale pink. Why not make it a bonsai? the species wants to grow that way. These plants are rooted cuttings in 4-inch pots.
