Ceropegia cf. denticulata
(under creative commons licence (4.0))
Well, I couldn’t resist when I saw that there’s a Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii ex Durban/RSA … and so I bought seven plants (… six different ones …) altogether.
So, here’s the quite large box ….
A close look into the box ….
Oh yeah! The cuttings.
What do we have here?
Ceropegia grandis – of course a form of Ceropegia nilotica
Ceropegia nilotica Madagascarensis – Ceropegia nilotica, but there’s no Ceropegia nilotica in Madagascar … 😉
Ceropegia occulta x woodii – well well, looks very like Ceropegia linearis, we will see …
Ceropegia sp. Jan Wilkens – apparently another Ceropegia nilotica, but let’s wait for the flower
Ceropegia woodii DSC 079 Coe W. Durban – wonderful, what beautiful leaves!
So, I hope they all will root, but usually the cuttings from Mr. Shirley do so very well, and as always, I can only recommend his service! 😛

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.
Ceropegia nilotica or rather not?
… this is the second flower of my large-leaved clone that has opened, but the first one of which I could take a photograph.
There are some very few long ‘hairs’ on the tip of the flower’s petals, which show that the plant obviously has some Ceropegia denticulata genes.
