Cyphostemma juttae, native to Namibia, forms an interesting caudiciform shape with a thick, conical caudex. Trunk has peeling bark and is topped with gray-green succulent leaves that are very serrated along the margins. This plant, is known as "Basterkobas" in its native habitat, and is in the Grape Family, Vitaceae. Forms red, non-edible "grapes" after flowering. Can grow to 5' or more in time. Grows faster if planted directly in the ground. Excellent in the landscape or as a patio plant. Also can create a very desireable bonsai with the proper pruning. Can tolerate intense light and some frost. Porous soil with excellent drainage. Bright light to full sun. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Protect from frost to prevent possible scarring.
