Wasn't sure reproducing by cutting were possible, but Woot and Saravud Ratanavanitroj send me those photos of an divided plant. Both mum and kid are doing fine after half a year.

   This member of the Asclepiadaceae* family was described by Henning Kunze , Ulrich Meve and Sigrid Liede in 1994. It grows in a well drained soil with some water and lots of sun. The irregular caudex can grow to 50 centimetres or more, the wines for three meters or more. The small flowers are green with a white centre.

*This family might be incorporated in the Apocynaceae family now.

Large plant in Namibia, bit is it Cibirhiza albersiana?
