Tongue Leaf Plant Glottiphyllum oligocarpum

From the Cape Province and the Karoo desert in South Africa, this genus of about 57 species of succulent subtropical plants grow in between rocks. The Tongue Leaf Plant (Glottiphyllum oligocarpum), has a lovely yellow flower.  

Looking for a unique birthday gift? Adopt the entire species of the Tongue Leaf Plant of South Africa to save it from extinction and safeguard its future.

You can adopt this entire species as a gift for £1,000. Your donation will be used to maintain the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership, ensure this species is kept safe forever in the vaults, and to collect more species in the future.

In addition to receiving your adoption pack featuring your certificate and photograph of the species (this will be posted to you, or the recipient), you will also be invited to a behind the scenes tour of the Millennium Seed Bank, at Wakehurst. You'll meet the staff and see the vaults where your species is stored.
