A different plant than many other Dorstenias in that the stem is rather soft, succulent and forms a thick caudiciform base. The leaves are thick, light green and may often appear wilted. There are many star-like hypanthodiums which serve as both flower and fruit, and the plant can reach over a foot tall. An interesting and easy to grow species.
Dorstenia crispa lancifolia 'Voi'
An interesting Dorstenia with olive green foliage with distinct white veining. The juvenile leaves are round to oval but then grown out the adult leaves become elongated.
Dorstenia foetida v. foetida
This ‘other worldly’ curiosity is a fig relative from Tanzania and is a larger grower than most other Dorstenia species, reaching well over 12 inches. The trunk is swollen and knobby with many side branches. The bright green leaves are rather long, arching and cupped. The ‘flowers’ are hand-like structures called hypanthodiums and look like green sunflowers. Very popular, easy to cultivate species.
