After a year, this one finally bloomed. I'm guessing this'll make it easier to identify. I have some candidate names written down somewhere in my house and they do look quite similar to this plant, but I forgot what their flowers look like. Help.

You are on the right track. It is an Asclepiad

My first instinct is an Orbea or possibly Caralluma.
Which one will take someone more knowledgeable than I am.

I pursued these plants passionately years ago and am still fond of them. Lovey dubby Thanks for sharing the photos.

Ceropegia venenosa subsp. venenosa


Is it possible you saved it in the above link? You posted that you have one of these so I'll bet you are correct on this ID. Looking at other searches for this Orbea resembles it also. What do you think?

Pretty Orbea! Lovey dubby I shouldn't be looking or else I'll be out shopping again... Whistling

Thanks! I should've done a search on the database first. Interestingly, our database treats the two as the same thing pretty much. If you look for caralluma hesperidum, you'll see it says orbea descaiseana subsp. hesperidum. I must've stated that I have one a long time ago, but I wasn't certain because it hadn't bloomed.

Btw if you like it, I think it's worth getting. They break apart very easily but root just as easily. They don't seem finicky at all in terms of water and sun either. Get one! Hurray!

Has anyone called you a trouble maker lately? Whistling I need to resist temptation as I'm not sure everything will fit in the greenhouse in a couple of months here. I will keep it in mind though as I do like it. Lovey dubby
