The flower and the seeds.

   This member of the Moraceae family was given this name by Georg August Schweinfurth in 1896. It is found in Northern Africa, growing in a well-drained soil with lots of water and little sun. The stem will grow to 15 centimetres in diameter and 40 centimetres high. The flowers are green and the plant can only be reproduced by seeds, which by the way pops out of the flower for up to 2 meters. 

Have to be kept in a rather high air humidity. 

Also seen as member of the Urticaceae family (IPNI).
