This is the first blooming of another seed raised plant.
Cool bloom & great pic!!! Thanks for posting!
Thanks for the nice comments. I should have a few more to post in the next little while. If anyone knows the species I have here I would love to know. I am not experencied enough with these plants to identify them yet, I am mostly an orchid grower but I couldn't resist a small collection of Stapeliads.
Wow, stunning! I can't wait til I get some blooms.
I can't ID these myself, however, pls. check out site for Dr. Gerry Barad, masterful Stapeliad grower (which he often calls 'Orchids of the Succulent World'); this may also be accessable by link from Cactus Mall.
Quite likely you'll be able to match a pic or 2 to your bloom, from his extraordinary & extensive collection. Be forewarned, likely to show you many more Staps to lust over!
Hi Pirate Girl
I have been looking at a bunch of sites but there seems to be a lot of variation within certian species. I am not very sure of my results so I am going to ask the people at the Yahoo Group for Stapeliads. Looking at all of those photos convinced me that it was time to put in a few seed orders.
I took a better photo with the new camera.
Here is a link that might be useful: Great list of web sites
I believe the correct spelling is HUERNIA, isn't it ?
