Maybe a squat pot might force them to store more water? A shallow root system?

Show us some pictures if and when you cut the top out. I\'d like to see how it comes out.

I have Jatropha multifida (Guatemalan rhubarb) too and have thought about cutting the tops out as they are about 3.5 to 4 feet high. It has never bloomed but the leaves are very interesting.

I think my Buddha Belly plants are 3 years old from seed that I got off eBay.

Okay the seeds are from May, 2018 so not quite 3 years old yet. Four months later and they are growing nicely.
