    Sure. It was a gift from a friend's wife. We had dinner with them once or twice back in 1995 or 1996. The friend and his wife have since divorced and I have no contact information for her. I have tried to contact both of them, but he was in his late 70's when I knew him. Not sure where to look for him or his ex-wife now. She was much younger (maybe 18-20 yrs younger), so I was hoping to find her on FB, but I don't know her new last name or maiden name.

    It is a unique plant. Our friend grew lots of bonsai trees and his wife was into strange miniature plants. We tried to get them into orchids, but they were happy with all the weird trees, etc that they collected over the years from all their different travels.

    Cheers,
    BD

    I almost missed this edited post, Paul. I think you are correct. Dorstenia foetida seems to be the one.

    Thanks!!

    Bruce if you "google" Dorstenia hildebrandii under images, you will see a picture of your plant. (but I think you already know this) LOL! Betty :-)
