Here is a photo of a NOID with a recent bloom, there are more buds. This is something my daughter gave me (from Ft. Worth) and I brought back to south La. The blooms appeared this week, lots of rain, humidity, and hot. Can anyone provide and ID on this plant, the bloom is about the size of a quarter.

thanks

That looks to be a Huernia.

Dutchlady1, thanks for the help, sure looks like it. I am seriously trying to correctly name the plants that are in my garden. I have a bad habit of repotting and losing the original label. Thanks again

Thanks Karmatree, it would not do very much for my daughter but it seems to like s. La. and is doing quite well.

I've got a few doing very well in hot, humid Florida. I just leave them alone and they chug along Big Grin
