Marvelous caudiform species with bowling pin trunk studded with small thick leaves and cute "open-handed" hypanthodiums. Prefers warmth, thus ideal for growing under lights. Certainly the least demanding (culturally) of the caudiform group of Dorstenias.
Stock Number: 40202
"Tortus Herb" Haired 8" silvery-patterned leaves deeply elaborately lobed arch out from succulent segmented stems; rayed receptacles (hypanthodiums) resemble crazed sea coral.
