Air Potato

Dioscorea bulbifera


Fast growing vines that make potato-like growths that are essentially seeds for it. They can also re-sprout from their roots.


Every F'ing where. My mother (who should have known better) introduced these into her yard starting in just 2 pots on the posts at the end of her driveway. Now they are everywhere.


heh.. I did not know that these plants are used to create steroids
