Orostachys iwarenge, or iwarenge (Scientific name: Orostachys malacophylla var. iwarenge) is a perennial carnivorous plant in the family Crassulaceae, which is endemic to Japan. It grows naturally in the rocky areas of the coast from west of Kanto to northern Kyushu. The leaves are rosette rosettes about 10 cm in diameter and are plump as they store water.
