Most Succulent Aeschynanthus?

epiphyte78(9)September 3, 2012

Recently a friend gave me a cutting of his NOID Aeschynanthus. It's quite succulent for an Aeschynanthus. I really want to say that it's nearly twice as succulent as Aeschynanthus speciosus...which is more succulent than Aeschynanthus evrardii. I also have Aeschynanthus gracilis...which is somewhat succulent...but the growth habit of the NOID cutting is more along the lines of speciosus/evrardii.

Does anybody know which Aeschynanthus might perhaps be the most succulent?

In terms of friend said that the flowers aren't particularly showy. Which might suggest that it's not very commonly grown.

Can you post a photo of the foliage/bloom? That will help people immensely when trying to ID it. Any idea if it's a species or hybrid plant?

I'll eventually post a photo of it...but in the meantime I'm interested in learning which are the most succulent Aeschynanthus.
