Hello John:

O. succulenta is from the Coquimbo province of Chile, and O. herrerae is
from Peru.  They are different plants.  I think your photo is of O.
succulenta, but I've never seen O. herrerae, so I am not really sure.

Hello every one !

I am John, new here; living in Champagne (France) please forgive me for my
poor English speaking.

I'm fond of succulents (mostly caudiciforms) but I love almost exotic
plants. ;o)

Here is my question:

I've got the plant on the picture (…
1.jpg ) from the Belgium botanical garden. They told it's Oxalis succulenta
(synonym Oxalis herrerae)

I can found on many sources that they are synonym, but on the ipni site for
example they are not synonyms. And if I search on Google, I can find two
different plants under these two different names, but mixed! I can't figure
what is the good one!

Is there anyone able to help me please?

Thanks in advance,
