No, but I love the name: Man, I HOT! Seriously, it's a very pretty plant. The leaves look oddly like a fig.

I like Thumbs up it too Alma. Regular manihots are tapioca plants. I am glad to see that there is a native to az version of man-i-hot Rolling on the floor laughing

Do you know if the flowers are fragrant? And how does one get tapioca from the plant? I've never thought about it.
