Which dioscorea is that?
« on: February 15, 2021, 10:23:43 PM »
I have a dioscorea in my garden and I don't know which one. I grew it from seed and it is def not d. alata. It is either an edible or a medicinal one, maybe batatas??? Thank you!

Looks like batatas (polystachya). The flowers should smell of cinnamon.
