The caudex from Copperflora.

   This member of the Vitaceae family was given this name by Bernard M. Descoings in 1966. It is found in tropical africa, growing in a well drained soil with some water and some sun. The caudex can grow to ten centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to 130 centimetres in height. The flowers are greenish red.

I never been able to grow this plant in a nice shape. It won't climb, it won't stand.
