Ziziphus Mucronata also known as; a Buffalo thorn or Cape thorn (English), blinkblaar-wag-'n-bietjie (Afrikaans), umPhafa, umLahlankosi or isiLahla (isiZulu), umPhafa (isiXhosa), umLahlabantu (Swazi), mokgalo (Tswana) mutshetshete (Venda), mphasamhala (Tsonga), and mokgalô, moonaona (N Sotho) is a small tree which can grow to the height of around 17 metres in nature.

You can expect to see a short trunk which is green and hairy when young and as the Ziziphus Mucronata ages the bark will become grey-brown and cracked into rectangular blocks revealing a stringy under-surface. The branches begin near the base of the trunk as well as having pairs of sharp thorns along the stems (one thorn facing forward the other backwards), the crown can be found to be irregular with compact spreading and descending branches. The leaves of the Ziziphus Mucronata are glossy green on the upper side and pale on the under-side, turning golden yellow in Autumn. The flowers bloom (depending on rainfall during winter) from October to February, these flowers are small and spawned in clusters on the branches and greenish white in colouring. The Ziziphus Mucronata also bear fruit, which often aids the bending of the branches, the fruit is known as a glossy drupe (a fruit which has a fleshy part which surrounds a hard shell with the seed inside), you can expect to see these fruits towards the end of January or later in winter.

Please note when bonsaied the size of your Ziziphus Mucronata will depend on how you cut, trim and shape your tree during the growing process, you will also find that your Ziziphus Mucronata will attract bees, butterflies, birds and other insects. Due to the Ziziphus Mucronata being an incredibly adaptable tree, it will grow in all types of soil (we do recommend the Seedleme Bonsai soil when Bonsaiing to best aid your Ziziphus Mucronata during growth) and having the ability to withstand extreme weather.

How to grow : 

Take the small grow pellets and gently add water. Once they are fully expanded you will see the size to fit grow pellet inside the coco peat grow pots. Slightly fill the base with the bonsai soil. Place the expanded grow pellet onto of the soil and fill around the edges to keep the pellet sturdy but do not apply to much pressure. You can refill around the edges if needed once watered but try and avoid covering the grow pellet where your seed wants to sprout. Place the seed inside the expanded grow pellet not more than 2 thirds of the seeds depth under the coco peat. Water generously with a fine mist spray and keep moist during germination. Avoid heavy watering as this will potentially wash away the cover sprouting medium or disturb your seeds.

What you get :

3 x coco peat pots
3 x coco peat grow pellets
3 x Buffalo Thorn, Cape Thorn tree (Latin name Ziziphus Mucronata)
