Dioscorea bulbifera

Dioscorea bulbifera, commonly known as the Air Yam, is a vining perennial plant renowned for its unusual aerial tubers. Native to tropical regions, this yam species features heart-shaped leaves and produces bulbils along its stems, giving it the "air" in its name. The bulbils, resembling small potatoes, can be detached and planted to propagate the plant. With its climbing habit and unique reproductive strategy, the Air Yam adds an intriguing touch to botanical landscapes, showcasing adaptability and resourcefulness in its growth. The twining stems produce aerial axillary bulbils that are edible.Dioscorea bulbifera bulbils are used in the treatment of Piles, dysentery, syphilis, ulcers, cough, leprosy, diabetes, asthma, and cancer. It is a raw material for contraceptives, and it is one of the most consumed yam species especially in West Africa.

Again a portion of the sales of this plant will go to cancer research to help others.
