Can Dorstenia zanzibarica be considered a weed?

I am not new at growing plants, even for my young age of 24, I have acquired a lot of experience in growing cacti and I have been cultivating them for many years already. I just had a bad luck with scales, I would say that I have more than 6 years of experience at raising and growing them.
