Mattress Button Plant | Dorstenia Elata
This one is something special because not only does it have stunning glossy emerald green foliage which thickens as it matures but it a variety of fig. This is most noticeable when it produces a flower that hardens into the shape of an old fashioned button, which were used on mattresses well over 50 years ago. The flowers of "inflorescence" are super hard and last a long time.This one tolerates low levels of light and is fairly easy to care for. Each plant measures approx 20cm in height from soil level and 20cm in width.
