Dioscorea elephantipes large

Common name is Elephant's foot, this plant is used to extreme heat (above 40°C), but it can also take low temperatures (-4°C). It seems to have a wide tolerance of growing habitats, growing in weathered rock, on dry, stony slopes, under the protection of karroid bushes. Sir William Hooker, one of the ex directors of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew Gardens and historical botanical explorer, reported seeing one such specimen in the wild attain a height of 2.1 m (7 ft). The weight was estimated at 365 kg. This plant will live for approx. 70 years in cultivation, if it is looked after properly,
