Stephania Pierrei, also known as Stephania erecta, is an unusual caudiciform plant with a stem swollen like a round ball and up to 1 foot (30 cm) in diameter. It sprouts in spring in a lovely vine, up to 26.2 feet (8 m) long, with round leaves and yellowish flowers.
- From the time new growth begins in spring until stems and foliage die down in fall, they need moderate watering, enough to keep the soil evenly moist, but not saturated.
- During their winter dormancy, water should be withheld entirely.
- Do not overwater, as the caudex will rot, and your plant will die
