Dorsteinia cf. horwoodii An unusual fleshy caudiciform relative of figs. The stems are upright and branch in time. Leaves are green with heavily scalloped margins. The flowers (actually inflorescence) are a strange multi lobed shape. Easy to grow. Likes good light but not full sun. It is more tropical than the average succulent so it doesn't like to dry out fully and likes some warmth in the winter.
I am a little unsure of the exact identity of this plant. It came from a seed batch that is supposed to be D. horwoodii, and many plants in this batch are unquestionably D. horwoodii. However, this one has less scalloped leaves than I'm used to for D. horwoodii, but more than typical D. foetida. So I suspect it may be a cross between D. horwoodii and D. foetida. I've priced it between what I'm asking for my D. foetida and my pure D. horwoodii listings.
You will receive the plant shown in the last two images. Plant shown in a 3.5" pot.
