Illustration of a plant with plates of gray, stone-like bark protecting its roots. Its green heart-shaped leaves trail over nearby orange stone. Original photo by Andrew massyn – Own work, Public Domain.


Safety Rating: Harmless

Environment: Deserts.

Details: This small succulent bush with heart shaped leaves stores water in large bulbs within its roots. It protects these bulbs by encasing them in armor-like bark made of stone plates. Over many years of growth, these stone roots build up into mounds that collect wind-born debris, building up the soil. A number of small desert animals find shelter in the cracks between its stony roots.

Photo Inspiration: Dioscorea elephantipes.
