Thought I start a new thread here -
I am happy my Stapeliads came nicely through this warm Summer and some of them are now blooming.
This one took so long to finally bloom that in the meanwhile the tag had faded. But, I think this is Tavaresia barklyi x Orbea variegata. the bloom measures ca. 2 inches across, a nice size compared to the smallish plant growth.

Matelea cyclophylla is still growing and blooming which is nice, since this one is most of the time reduced to the corky caudex.

Another small "Stapeliad" - Huernia penzigii var macrocarpa. This one is cristated and looks also interesting when not in bloom. This is an easy grower and stays compact.

Thanks Ursula. Mine has never bloomed so I'm happy to see what it will hopefully look like in bloom. Such a rich color!

This cyclamen looked like it was dying all winter. It was a gift from Patti (bbrookrd) and she actually threw the pot herself. Now I think it was in dormancy during the winter.

Good looking Cyclamen! Is this one fragrant?
About the Huernia - this year my Stapeliads didn't really bloom much during the Summer, I see more blooms now.

I must have missed it when the corolla lobes were out vs. back.
