Apologies for the blurriness of the pic with the bloom - I didn't take the pic but got it from the friend who gave me the little cuttings to plant. She doesn't know what it is either but it's growing indoors in a sunny window and seems to be pretty happy. Anyone know what it could be?

Thanks in advance for any help! I tip my hat to you.

It is an asclepiad, something along the lines of Huernia, Stapelia, or Orbea... That flower should allow you to find which one from among them.

Yes Yes!!! It's such an odd bloom and since it wasn't clear, I couldn't tell what was going on with the background of the lifesaver lol

I really appreciate the help I get on this Forum. Everyone is so knowledgeable.

Thank You!
