This is how it's supposed to look.


This member of the Aizoaceae family was described by Martin Heinrich Gustav Schwantes in 1926. It's from South Africa, growing in a well-drained soil with some water and lots of sun. It will grow to 10 centimetres, the flowers are yellow and it can be reproduced by cuttings and seeds. I found this weird one on Amager in 2003.

Seen as a Ficoidaceae (IPNI).
