|Dorstenia are members of the Moraceae family. Most succulent species come from Africa, thus they require warmth. Their minimum average temperature should be 55°FThey are Endemic to Socotra island. They grow up to 8 feet tall (2.5 m), trunk up to 2 feet in diameter (60 cm) or more. Keep dry when they have no leaves. Propagation is best by seeds, because it is difficult from cuttings. Two plants are needed to produce seeds because the Dorstenia are not self-fertile. The ripe seeds are ejected with force from the flower structures, so the inflorescences should be bagged after they are pollinated.|
