Dioscorea mexicana

Out of Stock

The ‘Turtle Plant’ of Mexico has a deeply sculpted caudex resembling a turtle shell. A forest-dweller that lives on sparse, thin forest soils, producing a deciduous vine with large ovate leaves. The sculpted caudex has raised pyramids of old ‘bark’ that increase in size with age. It can attain a large size of over 24 inches, but big plants are rare in cultivation and are much sought as a curiosity. We produce seedlings from our own stock plants.
