Picked up a pot packed with these yesterday. I know it is a dorstenia but not sure what type. They were totally and completely root bound so I separated them. I hope they can handle aggressive root disturbance... I planted them in some loose cacti mix which I also hope is OK...

Anyone recognize this plant?

Check out D hildebrandtii. I have a very similar plant I obtained this past Sunday under that name (and I grow 6 other Dorstenia spp).

Almost looks alien. I love it. I have to go and find one. I love the fat caudex.

I reread this old thread. I have several Dorstenias I can't ID either. The first is several years old and keep chugging a long.

Hi helenchild! I do love Dorstenia and I have several. I've also lost a few already, to bad culture and to critters (they seem to be yummy to animals). The two plants you shared are both almost certainly D foetida. It used to be separate from D crispa, but they're considered the same species now. A friend of mine who grows and sells professionally says the Dorstenia volunteer seedlings in his greenhouse used to bother him, but now he just waits until they're big enough, pots them up, and sells them.
