Dorstenia barnimiana is a perennial (almost) stemless, monoecious herb up to 20 cm tall, in the fig family (Moraceae). It has a slightly depressed or subglobose tuber (caudex) with leaves and inflorescences from the tuber. Dorstenia barnimiana is rather variable in features of leaves and inflorescences. This species has an inflorescence consisting of a green and brown flattened receptacle in a vertical position surrounded by tendril-like appendages. Plants may have entire and palmately compound leaves, and all intermediates in the same population. The inflorescences also vary in colour and in number of appendages.
