It develops an immensely thickened root and stem base, and In the short sea- son, only a few weeks In length, dur- ing which lt can obtain water from the soil, lt supplies Itself by means of short tendrils, which then dry up. Arter that lt Hes on the desert en- tirely detached from the soil. It ls said that lt can Btore enough writer to last a quarter of a century. The specimen In New York was obtained In 1002, nnd lt has remained In a museum case ever since. Annually, nt Its wonted season, lt puts out tu- bers, which, obtaining no moisture or sunshine, soon die; but tho plant con- tinues to live. For seven successive years, repeating Its nnnual search for moisture, lt has continued to send ont useless tendrils.
