This delicate looking little vine is pretty tough, and seems to do well with around 4 hours of sun a day. It's very drought tolerant: when I first found it there was no foliage and the caudex was shriveled and lumpy from lack of water. One good watering and it plumped up just fine, in a week it was sending up green growth. I recommend sharp draining, succulent cacti potting mix, and weekly or biweekly (every other week) watering in spring and summer when it has foliage. Not sure where it's from, but its got a lot of character

Somewhat of a cousin to Bowiea volubilis, its growth habit and cultural needs are similar. My 3-year-old seedling is ~3/4" diameter and 1" tall; I believe the russet color of both bulb and foliage may be due to too strong light.
Unless I am doing something wrong, this plant is quite slow-growing. However, like many of the fat-bottomed plants, it has charm.
