Three years, and this is all I got. Own root.

   This member of the Euphorbiaceae family was given this name by Peter René Oscar Bally and Susan Carter in 1976. It is found in Somalia, growing in a well drained gypsum grit with some water and lots of sun. The thick root can grow to three centimetres in diameter, the entire plant to eight centimetres in height and fifteen wide. The flowers are greenish yellow.

This might not be considered a caudiciform after all. It does have a thick, fleshy root, but it just forms a mound of the two centimetre thick branches. Well, here it is anyway.

Mostly seen as a grafted plants. I have only grown them on their own roods, and never experienced any problems. I keep them warm and moist all year.
