This is a fast-growing, vining, caudiciform plant with a cork-like base plate, a large grey-brown "foot" that, as it grows older, becomes deeply fissured forming provocative polygonal projections. The caudex can grow 2 feet with the vine reaching up to 15'. Keep base (caudex) well-shaded; it's from South and East African semi-shaded woodlands. Tender perennial vine.

Minimum temperature: 35º F
