Nice caudex on a plant from Mbuyu.

 
   This member of the Moringaceae family was described by Giovanni Ettore Mattei in 1908. It is found in Southern Kenya up to the region of Kisimayu in Southern Somalia by the coast. Growing in well-drained soil with plenty of water and sun. The stems will reach for 3 meters. The flowers are green to crème.

This plant does not like too dry air. The leaves dies as fast as they grow in my 50% humidity. Has to grow it elsewhere.
