Nice flowers everyone!Awsome stapelia Dominic!I have a few pics to share...Took these when I got off work today.Huernia insigniflora...About 2 inches across.
Huernia hystrix...About the size of a quarter.
Great thread Dominic to show off everybodys odd looking flowers!
No problem!I was very excited about Edithcolea grandis blooming...I got the plant as a small rooted cutting 3 years ago,and this is the first time it has bloomed!It tried to get budd last summer,but they never made it to maturity...maybe the plant wasnt old enough.The dutchmans pipe blooms every summer.I bring it inside for the winter months.I've had flowers on this plant over 12 inches long!
My neither...I got mine from Logees as a small cutting.It had some small buds last summer,but they always aborted when small.I wastered it a bit more this summer and it seemed to work.I have more buds on it growing larger I have it growing in an orchid pot with holes on the sides.I hear they can rot easy.
Thats a neet one..seems to be very rare.There is a guy in Florida that selles them pretty cheep..Didnt see ciliata,but Edithcolea grandis is only 5 bucks.So are all his others!Wish i had more room...lol heres the link http://www.bobsmoleys.com/asclepiad.html
