Stephania suberosa, like Stephania erecta, is another fascinating plant with a caudex (swollen stem base) that makes it a popular choice for plant enthusiasts. The bulb, or caudex, is typically round and corky, with a rough texture. When sprouted, it produces delicate vines with heart-shaped or round leaves. It is a climbing or trailing plant, often grown indoors for its unique appearance and ease of care.

Planting the Bulb

Orientation: Plant the bulb with the flat side down and the pointed side up. If the orientation is unclear, planting it sideways is an option, as the plant will naturally grow upwards.

Soil: Use well-draining soil, such as a cactus or succulent mix, possibly amended with additional perlite or sand for better drainage.

Depth: Plant the bulb just below the soil surface, with the top slightly exposed to help prevent rot.

Watering: Initially, water sparingly until signs of growth appear. Overwatering can cause the bulb to rot. Once the plant starts growing, water more regularly, but let the soil dry out between waterings.

Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while low light can slow growth.

Dormancy: Stephania suberosa may go dormant in the winter, losing its leaves. During dormancy, reduce watering significantly and keep the bulb in a cooler, drier place.

Tips for Success
- Be patient; it may take several weeks for the bulb to sprout.
- Maintaining a humid environment can help promote healthier growth, especially in drier climates.
- Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even light exposure and growth.
