Like the speckled hairs on a man’s cheek that has not been shaved smoothly, its surface is thick and rough. The very asymmetric leaves rotate anti-clockwise with repeated frillscharacteristic leaves.

No fragrance. This ornamental plant sits next to the mouse key on my desk, surveying its new location. There are a male and a female flower developed from the same stem. She has five red petals opened, honestly, earnestly, but in centre, a hard, golden stigma looks like a button made out of tangling golden beads, but it also looks like a kind of creation from a skin disease. The core of the male flower, on the other hand, is invisible to the eye, smothered as it is in frilly petals. Its spherical shape looks like a cheap red flamenco dress.
