Buddha Belly (Jatropha)

ltran54(9)July 19, 2014

Any body in here have Buddha Belly plant? It is very much like DR for caring info. I had this plant 5 years ago. It blooms all summer, 1-2 bundles of small red flowers at all time.

Marie,
It may not matter a lot but you have Jatropha cathartica (Baseball) and not Jatropha podagrica (Buddha Belly.

bgp.123,
Thank you for the info. I had the Jatropha 'padagrica' and I gave it to a friend.
The "baseball" one you have Marie has different leaves than what I had, but I much prefer yours.
I love the base. Looks like a round rock inside of the other rocks you have surrounding it.
So neat.

The leaves look like miniature papaya leaves!

Marie, what is the plant you have had the longest?
