If you are looking for a plant that is easy to grow, or you are the type of person who forgets to water your plants, then Adenia spinosa is perfect for you! The Adenia spinosa is a unique and intriguing succulent plant that is native to parts of Africa, including Madagascar. The term "spinosa" means "with spines" and refers to the blunt spines on the branches of Adenia Spinosa that also serve as tendrils. 

The Adenia spinosa is known for its distinct spiny and climbing stems, which give it a striking appearance. In addition to its spiny green stems, the Adenia spinosa features thick, fleshy, egg-shaped leaves that are often arranged in a spiral pattern. These leaves can vary in color, ranging from bright green to a deeper, more vibrant shade. Adenia spinosa is a lovely caudiciform that is similar to Adenia glauca except for the spines on the vines. The caudex serves as a water storage organ, allowing it to withstand periods of drought. 

When it comes to cultivation, Adenia spinosa thrives in warm, tropical climates (70-85 F)in USDA zone 11 and prefers well-draining soil. It requires bright-indirect sunlight to promote healthy growth and should be watered sparingly, as overwatering can lead to root rot. This Adenia plant is known to be slow growing, but with proper care and patience, it can grow up to 5 feet tall. 

The flowers of Adenia spinosa bloom from late winter to mid-summer. The flowers are typically small and tubular in shape, and they come in various colors, including shades of creamy, pink, red, and white. This succulent's flowers typically last only a few days to a week or slightly longer. 

To propagate your Adenia Spinosa, simply use seeds or cuttings to produce a thick stem or caudex. Wait a few days for calloused cuttings before replanting.
