The Jatropha podagrica, or Buddha's Belly, is a caudiciform succulent that forms a large caudex at its base as it grows, making it a choice plant for ornamental display. This plant can grow up to 60cm tall, displaying an attractive caudex, sparse foliage, and red flowers. 

Being a Euphorbia, this plant has a toxic sap that should be completely avoided. Gloves and safely eyewear should be used when handling this plant. 

Like most succulents, the Jatropha podagrica Buddha's Belly grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant grows well in full sun and partial shade where it can get all the benefits of bright light without being scorched.
