Nice caudex, now I hope for some roots!

   This member of the Balsaminaceae family was described by William Grant Craib in 1926. It is found in the heights of the Chiang Dao mountain, Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, growing in limestone pockets with some water and some sun. The thickened stem will grow to ten centimetres in diameter and reach for one meter in height. The flowers will appear in February, and are white with a pink or orange centre. This plant can only be reproduced by seeds.
