Fockea edulis forms a thick grey tuber, known as a caudex, with small wart-like growths (tubercules) all over the surface.  In the wild, the caudex is partially or totally buried and tends to grow faster this way. From the top of the caudex thin vine stems branch out , reaching a length of up to 4 meters. and climb on any type of available support. The caudex can grow up to 60 cm in diameter, and the vines reach 4 meters in height.These are very easy to grow plants, simply keep in indirect light and water sparingly. It will vine easily and will be happiest with a shelf or branch to grown on. Unusual and interesting plant to add to you collection.
