I need id's for these three dorstenia. I think they are all the same species.

Dorstenia foetida. The problem, as I see it, is that D. foetida and crispa and crispa var. lancifolia get used interchangeably causing confusion. Then there are the type locale plants named for where they came, i.e., D. Mait Escarpement LAV 10341 which looks just like any other D. foetida. From the picture, the two back row right look very similar but have different names. I guess there is a lot of morphological differences depending on growing location, etc. Yours are all very nice and I have found them to be an interesting plant to have in my collection. The only downside is I have them EVERYWHERE in the greenhouse along with the Euphorbia leuconeura!!!!! I guess you could ask Michael Massara at OOA who is extremely nice and knowledgable regarding Dorstenia and would address your ID query.
