Positive palmbob On Apr 25, 2004, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

Great looking South African caudiciform plant with large, green usually smooth, swollen trunk base and small stem(s) that are (for me in Southern California) deciduous in winter. Stems tend to be vining and have somewhat glaucous leaves that are larger near the base of the stem and smaller near the tips. Flowers are thin and yellow in spring. I have had several of these plants and rotted most of them eventually having kept them under shade cloth in the winter- they do NOT like a lot of water when they have no leaves.
