    9 Is this indigenous, it looks very like the invader “Queen of the night”?

    Hey Jenny

    This was taken inside the succulent house and I’m pretty sure all the plants inside are indigenous. I’ll see if I can find any more pics of it that may help identification.

    Check out the ‘Euphorbia family’ on the net, I am sure you will be able to ID all of them. Possibly indigenous but Central america and Mexico contribute greatly to this family. Good Luck!
