  • Special notes:  
    Xerosicyos danguyi is an unusual climbing succulent vine with cylindrical stems and thick, succulent, round silvery-green leaves. Leaves are 1 to 2" long and wide with climbing tendrils located opposite them. The main stem grows to about 2 feet before it branches. Xerosicyos danguyi kept in pots should be repotted every other year with fresh, well-draining soil and be fertilized once a month during the growing season. In spring to summer the plant blooms with small yellowish-green flowers carried on umbels in the leaf axils. The plants are dioecious and require male and female plants to set seed. This member of the Cucurbitaceae family was described by Jean-Henri Humbert in 1939.
