I grow this adenium from seed, 3 years old but still tiny little plant with full head of small leaves.
Also a Buddah belly / Baseball plants. This plant with tiny little flowers but very colorful when bloom.

What a nice Jatropha berlandieri. I've always heard that referred to as the Baseball plant and the Jatropha podgrica as the Buddha Belly. Almost all jatrophas have the same blooms. A couple of my podagricas are in bloom now. Do the seedpods of the berlandieri explode too? The first time a seed pod on my podagrica opened I thought a pop gun had gone off! The seeds shot out about 30' away from the plant. Now I know to cover the almost ripe pods with some nylon.
