Does anybody know what this is? A friend gave this to me. Someone gave it to her. I think she was growing it in water.

I think Amanzed on the Cacti & Succulent Forum is correct with Bowiea volubilis. That is certainly the way they grow.

Mission Viejo, CA(Zone 9b)

I'm sure it is not that. Bowiea volubilis has a green onion like bulb. this has a bumpy round caudex.

Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

Oh, yes, you are right. I didn't notice the bulb was brown and bumpy. Hmmm, wonder what it is.

Yardley, PA

Maybe when there are some leaves, it will give you a better clue.

Decatur, GA

Did you ever figure out what this warty caudex is called?

Mission Viejo, CA(Zone 9b)

Nope.... Now its dead or dormant?

Sun Lakes, AZ(Zone 9a)

It is probably dormant. Don't give up on it!
