Hi there,

Fairly new to this website and I just recently have acquired some above succulents and would love to get to know them better and hopefully expand my collection later on.

Thanks

I'm growing several of each:

Stapelia leendertziae
Stapelia gigantea
Stapelia paniculata

Edithcolea grandis

Carralluma schweinfurthii

Huernia confusa
huernia schneideriana

I think that's it!

Yes, yes, and yes. I got hooked on these guys a few years ago. Bob Smoley carries a lot and so does Miles to Go. Also some rare ones on Ebay. For every two I purchase I loose one. Winter time is my worse time. My first ones was Stap. gigantea. It is a good grower and had much success with it. I just though the others would be just as hardy. Nope. Some I better not cross my eyes to look at. My most success was on Huernia seedlings from ebay. Seems they have a stronger will to live.

A very good grower and blooms for several months;


With such colorful stems, who needs flowers?

Grew well all thru summer but I must watch and keep warmer.

Nice red flowers and would you believe a whole branch broke off and two weeks had fully rooted. Again one that grew great in summer but got to watch during winter.

Last, my first Stapelia. It hasn't bloomed for the last several years now. Unknow why.

I have the following:
huernia zebrina
huernia stapelioides - small
orbea variegata
tromotriche longii
stapelia gigantia
stapelia grandiflora
I have looked at both websites and have a list of my "wants" but holding off ordering as it is getting colder and I want to make sure I can get what I have survive this year. It will be my first year growing them and first winter so I want to make sure I wont kill them ;-)Would you guys be interested in swap/trades in Spring perhaps? I found it is the inexpensive way to extend the collection.

Stush your collections is amazing! I just started and so far have 3 stapelias, 2 huernias and 1 orbea. Do you only collect these or you do have other plants you go crazy about ;-) I am also into passionflowers and hoyas.

Eileen,
Do you know Hoyas are in the same family as stapeliads. All in the Asclepiads group like my Butterfly Weed I also grow. And to answer you question; Sansevieria (snake plant) are my first love. I currently have 45 or so different kind. Also Agave's, Aloes, Euphorbias, Haworthia and hybrids with aloe, and echevierias. and a few odd balls here and there.
