Look no further than Neoalsomitra sarcophylla, a caudex-forming, perennial trailing succulent for a stunning and unique addition to your plant collection. The name of this genus comes from the Greek words "new" (Neos) and "alsomitra," another genus in the family Cucurbitaceae. The species sarcophylla name is referred to as "flesh leaf." 

Without enough sunlight, Neoalsomitra sarcophylla may struggle to thrive and drop its leaves. To maximize the possibility of growth, place it indoors less than three feet away from a south-facing window and outdoors in the USDA zone 10-12. During summer you should only water them once every 2-3 weeks at the most.  Do not water them unless the soil is dry to a depth of 1-2 inches.  In winter you probably do not need to reduce watering to keep it healthy.   

With its greenish-yellow flowers that bloom in the summer, this succulent is sure to be a conversation starter in any room or garden. Native to Burma, Philippines, and Thailand, it is frequently used for bonsai and can reach a height of 24 inches. Its leaves initially have a light green color that darkens with time.
