Ceropegia aristolochioides

This is one of many flowers, that appeared this year on one of my two plants for the first time – similar flowers can be seen on several pictures in the internet, named as Ceropegia aristolochioides, or Ceropegia aristolochioides ssp. deflersiana.

As far as I can see (using my weak eyes) the carpel is glabrous, thus this particular plant should be of the nominate race.

Ceropegia attenuata var. mookambikae Diwakar & R. Kr. Singh

Diese neue Varietät von Ceropegia attenuata Hook. wurde anhand von Exemplaren beschrieben (im Juni 2011), die auf dem Manmanhara-Plateau im Mookambika-Wildreservat, im Udupi-Distrikt in Karnataka / Indien gesammelt worden waren.

Die Pflanze sieht ein wenig aus wie eine Kreuzung aus Ceropegia attenuata Hook. und Ceropegia jainii Ansari & B.G. Kulk..

Ceropegia attenuata var. mookambikae Diwakar & R. Kr. Singh

This new variety of Ceropegia attenuata Hook. was described (in June 2011) on the basis of specimens, that had been collected on the Manmanhara Plateau in the Mookambika Wildlife Sanctuary in the Udupi District in Karnataka / India.

The plant looks a bit like a cross breed between Ceropegia attenuata Hook. and Ceropegia jainii Ansari & B.G. Kulk..
