Merremia tuberosa (Caudex)

A succulent plant with a remarkable spherical caudex, slightly elongating while growing, which usually remains exposed out of the ground: it is of a brown color, has rough texture, like bark, enriched with dense woody ribs. In the vegetative period, stems branch off from the apex of the tuber, which are more woody near the tuber and more green and flexible at the tip. Often grown as a pot ornamental plant, but in areas, such as India and Malaysia, it is mainly used for its remarkable medicinal benefits.
