Another favorite of mine from the awesome Mr. Frank O.
Hydnophytum formicarum - This form can be traced back to Papua New Guinea. The caudex is smaller on mature plants than the Horne form and is different in several other ways. This form has typical Hydnophytum formicarum stems, leaves and fruits but the globose caudex has a smooth and shiny surface unlike the roughened, dull colored surface of the Horne form. This New Guinea material can be traced back to an accession at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, their # ABG 2001-0053.
