Ceropegia arnottiana – a new species from Thailand in the German trade

What is this?

This plant (it isn’t mine) was obtained by its owner from a German dealer, that is otherwise known for it’s large assortment of succulent plants from Kenya.

This plant, however, comes from somewhere in Thailand. It was labelled as a new species, which, in fact, can mean almost anything.

It has a tuberous rootstock caudiciform tuber and some kind of stem, as You may clearly see in the photograph. What else can be said about it? Almost nothing so far – maybe it can be identified when it is flowering.
