What is Orostachys iwarenge.
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. In autumn, the flower stems emerge from between the leaves and bloom into spike inflorescences from the tips with many white flowers in 5 numbers. The flowers grow from the lower part of the inflorescence to the upper part of the inflorescence, and the plant dies when it blooms as it is a one-fertile plant.
