Senecio (giant groundsel) grows in many valleys at Mount Kilimanjaro in higher altitude (3000m-4000m). Leafs die and form a sponge like structure, serving as water reservoirs for the plant. According to our guides, you can dig for water where a Senecio plant grows.

Lobelia (left) grows along the trails and on Shira Plateau in about 3000m - 4000m altitude.
