The flower by Chris
Moore, Asclepiad-exhibition.org. Lack of brown spots though.
Look like C. spiculata to me.

sure reproducing by cutting were possible, but Woot
and Saravud Ratanavanitroj send me those photos of an divided
plant. Both mum and kid are doing fine after half a year.

This member of the Asclepiadaceae*
family was described by
Henning Kunze, Ulrich Meve and Sigrid Liede in 1994. It grows in a well drained soil with
some water and lots of sun. The irregular caudex can grow to 50
centimetres or more, the wines for three to five meters. The small
flowers are green with a white centre and brown spots.
The genera name from Latin;
cibus; 'nourishment' or 'food' and Greek; rhiza; 'root'
as the roots can be eaten.
The species name honours
Prof. Victor A. Albert, an American botanist.
*)Accordantly to the
latest taxonomic system; APG IV 2016 is Asclepiadaceae now
part of the Apocynaceae.
