Adenia venenata

Adenia venenata is asucculent shrub with a caudex. The branches get vine-like and have deeply lobed leaves.

I have 2 plants labeled Adenia venenata's  but they look a little different to me.

If you look closely at one of them you see a small dot like on the leaves by the stem. it's on every leaf.

No small dot like on the leaves of this plant. It's not bugs.

The second plant is for sure A. glauca. The dots are nectar glands, or something along those lines. Can't recall for sure, but I feel like glauca also has those but on the underside of the leaf?
