My recent purchases

And another one …

You can never have too many Ceropegias, this Ceropegia sandersonii is slightly different from my three other plants, so I just could not resist ….   😉



I couldn’t resist …

… and got me a Ceropegia africana, and just another clone of Ceropegia nilotica, that aroused my interest, because I found a dropped flower that was somewhat strangely coloured.



Ceropegia africana is a very easy species, and one of my absolute favorites, yet it will always die back and I have never managed to get cuttings soon enough, very bad!   😦

Unwrapping …

… a packet full of plants I ordered at “mbuyu”.

Let’s start.:


here we have the packet …


a lot of newspapers inside …


Well, well, Ceropegia galeata (!!!) yeah! yeah! yeah!, oh, and two small Cerpegia inornata, to reach the minimum order value.


It appears as if finger crossing was a good idea.   😛

Today …

… was a good day – I found a strinking clone of Ceropegia sandersonii; very large, yellowish flowers with brown markings on the tube.



Unwrapping …

… a packet got via ebay, it is supposed to contain a Ceropegia linearis from Malawi (the actual species doesn’t occur there, nor does any of its subspecies …), the picture accompanying the offer showed a Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii (of the debilis form).

So let’s see what we got there.:


a very small packet …


something from inside … 🙂


Oh see, its neither Ceropegia linearis, nor the plant from the photograph, its just another Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii clone, but it seems to be one without marbled leaves, that would be nice, let’s see ….

The last new plants for 2015 …

… are three cuttings of Ceropegia aristolochioides from Isiolo / Kenya and seven rooted cuttings of what I hope will be Ceropegia aristolochioides ssp. deflersiana.

The next new addition in 2015

In a flower shop in Gotha, where I visited my parents, I came across a very odd Ceropegia woodii, one with very strangely shaped, more or less completely grey leaves.

Again a quite expensive plant, but, who cares ….


My camera has so fucked up, so no photos yet – sorry.

The first new addition in (and probably the only for) 2015

Hi there!

I can’t belive it myself, but I managed to snatch a Ceropegia rhynchantha. 😛

The tiny plant consists of a small stem with two leaves, yet is growing, and of course has been far from beeing a cheap bargain. 😉

The third new addition in 2014

… found during the ‘Kakteen- und Sukkulentenbörse’ on the GRUGA in Essen / NRW / Germany: Ceropegia africana ssp. barklyii – a special clone with flowers like the nominate race, Ceropegia crassifolia – a small plant, Ceropegia inornata – a new one, as my plant died last year, Ceropegia nilotica – a large-leaved clone from South Africa, and finally Ceropegia rendallii – the real one! 😛

The second new addition in 2014

Bought today – as Ceropegia denticulata ssp. brownii – a new Ceropegia nilotica, a clone from KwaZulu-Natal, which produces high quantities of offshoots.
