“A medicine once in much repute against low fevers, and as a mild stimulant and diaphoretic, and still used in some countries, although not much in Britain, consists of the root-stocks (rhizomes) of different species of Dorstenia, a tropical American plant of the natural order Moraceae. The genus is remarkable for the plane receptacle in which the numerous small flowers are fixed; the male flowers in superficial depressions the female flowers in deep sockets.” — Chambers’ Encyclopedia, 1875
