“Where the Whale stirs its tail there is some turbulence” – Herman van Bon
This is one of the fastest growing succulent plants in our garden. It’s an Adenia spinosa and this caudiciform originates from the Highveld in South Africa somewhere in the area where one of my most faithful followers is nestled. The caudex can grow to approximately 2 meters in diameter. Last year I published an image on Facebook and somebody, who forgot to put her glasses on, thought it was a ‘whale’. Since than we always say that we have two whales in our garden. 😉
….. from a genetically point of view.
