Fockea edulis, native to South Africa, is a member of Asclepiadaceae, which includes Stapelia, Hoya, Ceropegia and many other genera. This is a caudiciform which will form a turnip-shaped caudex with gnarly, thickened roots wrapped around the base of the caudex. With many years, this caudex can grow to 30" in diameter. Crinkly leaves to 1" in length produced along vining canopy. This is a vining plant which loves to travel many feet if allowed the chance; will climb shrubs and even small trees. The more square inches of green material on top (the vining part used for photosynthesis), the faster the caudex below will grow. Pale green star-shaped flowers are produced in the summer months and are pollinated by flies. Porous soil with excellent drainage. Prefers bright shade or filtered sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch, but water very little during deciduous winter months. Protect from frost.
