Stephania Erecta

 

Stephania Erecta

Native to South East Asia and Australasia, these herbaceous perennial vines are also known as fat-bottomed plants for their woody bulbous trunk / stem, which is used for water storage. As such they can go for long periods of time without any water or nutrients. The vines can grow up to 4m long with leaves arranged spirally on the stem, and leaf petiole attached near the centre of the leaf.
