Cephalopentandra ecirrhosa Family: Curcurbitaceae. A strangely beautiful East African caudiciform vine related to cucumbers.  It produces elongated leaves on stiff vines from a caudex. The caudex is lumpy and brown.  It reminds me a lot of a melted candle! The vines will die back to the caudex in winter and regrow in the spring. Produces small yellow flowers in the summer. Likes water during the growing season (but don't keep it too wet). Keep dryer during hot spells. The leaves and vines are fine in full sun, but the caudex could get sunburn in harsh summer sun. As it comes from tropical Africa it likes to be kept at 50 degrees or more year round. Keep dry in winter.
