This caudex ant-plant is an epiphytic plant that develop a huge chambered stem, providing shelter for some species of ants.In turn, these ant-plants, or myrmecophytes, receive nutrients and protection from the ants. The caudex of Hydnophytum moseleyanum can get quite large, up to 20-40 cm in diameter, and the bark is grey and smooth (much like the one of any Adenium!). Yellow-orange berries are a nice addition to the beauty of this species.
