It is summer deciduous in hot dry climates. The stem is covered with small warty tubercules left at the base of old leaves (phyllopodia). Its leaves are succulent, long and narrow, with a center rib, looking something like a green bean. T. wallichii blooms in summer with pretty tubular yellow flowers on longish stems. Like other tylecodons it is summer deciduous and goes dormant in the hottest weather. When repotting do not plant the swollen stems too deep. Ensure the slender neck of the plant is just protruding above the soil with only the root underground. Most tylecodon species are poisonous, with cardiotoxic and cumulatively neurotoxic bufadienolides and need to be kept away from livestock and pets.
