    • Dorstenia foetida is a unique and unusual succulent plant that forms a rosette of thick, fleshy leaves with a central depression. The leaves are often mottled or marked with patterns, and the plant's overall structure can resemble a star or sunburst.
      Dorstenia foetida produces unusual and inconspicuous flowers. The flowers are often small and lack petals, but they are surrounded by specialized bracts that may be more noticeable than the actual flowers. The plant's reproductive structures are adapted for attracting and trapping small insects.
      The unique reproductive strategy of Dorstenia foetida involves attracting flies by mimicking the smell of decaying matter. Flies are then lured into the central depression where the flowers are located. The plant has evolved to utilize this insect-assisted pollination method.
