An older plant.

As for so many other plants;
They do best where you don't want them.

Sweet sap from glands on the leaves and stems.

The fruits. 

  

This member of the Balsaminaceae family was described by Joseph Marie Henry Alfred Perrier de la Bâthie in 1934. It's found around Diego Suarez, on Montagne des Français, northern part of Madagascar. Give it a well-drained soil and lots of water in summer. The branches fall off in dormancy. The caudex grows to 30 centimetres, the stems reach 60 centimetres. The flowers are pink, an the seed-capsules "pop".

Beautiful flowers.

First, the male pollen pops out, then the female catcher.
