If anyone has any seeds or cuttings or small plants of Ceropegia sandersonii I would be interested in trading something from my listings for it... it's quite an interesting plant.
Barb I have Ceropegia stapeliformis seeds of the green flowered variety and a rooted cutting of the regular variety. I also have Ceropegia carnosa but it is a small flowered tuberous rooted species and is not as showy as Ceropegia sandersonii. Paul Shirley Succulents carries many Ceropegias and shipping to Canada is very affordable. If you don't want to put in an order let me know and I will add it to my order when it warms up this spring.
Thanks Mike, I'd be very interested in chipping in with your order...Do you have cultivation information for Ceropegia sankuruensis? If it also can get by with part shade and low humidity I might like to try it as well. Let me know when you are about to order.
You probably already have these, but I have seeds of Asclepias incarnata and A. curassavica, just finished their cold treatment, if you need any for your collection. Also A. tuberosa.
Talk to you later,
Barb this page is a good one for information on Ceropegia. I also have a good book on the Asclepiadiace family so if you find any others that you can't locate information for just let me know. There are 180 species listed, about 1/3 of the total numbers of species but Ceropegia sankuruensis is not listed.
I also have a Ceropegia rupicola X aristolochioides hybrid and Ceropegia linearis ssp. debilis I could take cuttings from. I find that most of my plants do best in bright light and that too much sun will cause leaf loss especially in the more succulent leafed species. A slightly shaded southern exposure works well for my plants.

Thanks for the links! I think an incipient new plant obsession is germinating for me. I would be interested in cuttings from your Ceropegia rupicola x aristolochioides and C. linearis ssp. debilis if there is anything of mine you would like to trade them for.
Barb I sent you an email.
