You have some very, very cool plants there, Zach! How big a plant is the Stapeliformis pilosus? Love a bunch of the ones you have. The purple/black and O varigata are intriguing and love the Huernia.

Thanks guys! :P
Sorry about this, it is Stapelianthus*, not stapeliformis.

The stapelianthus is about 2-3 inches tall, and is relatively easy to care for.

Here is a November surprise (for me at least)... Huernia pillansii just flowered. Here is the first flower, with a second bud on the right. This is tiny!
