A very attractively variegated form of S. foetida that makes a nice container plant in cooler climates. Its history as a bonsai subject is a hint to its tolerance of pot culture. The epithet foetida is definitely apt. The smell of broken foliage, to me, is redolent of rotting meat. A small price to pay, though, for such an attractive plant. Just don't make a habit out of damaging the foliage!
