I forgot to …

… take photos from the unboxing, but here is the plant, however.:

It’s a Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii of course, but it is one with a known locality; it comes from Soutpansberg in South Africa.

I may already own the smae clone, but … one can never have to many Ceropegias.

EGA Erfurt / Thuringia / Germany

The EGA (Erfurter Garten Austellung – Erfurtian Garden Exhibition) is not a Botanical Garden, not at all, but it harbours a collection of succulent plants, including three Ceropegia species, one of them is a quite old and very large Ceropegia fusca.:

c.fusca.190816.1

The second one is the usual and overly common Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii.:

c.l.woodii.190816.1

The last one is Ceropegia stapeliiformis, which is climbing through a large Euphorbia bush; photographed through a very worn acrylic glass window.:

Botanical Garden Jena / Thuringia / Germany

There appear to be only two species present in that garden, Ceropegia cimiciodora, a very large specimen that grows more or less freely within the surrounding Vegetation (it has already reached a height of about 2 m so far and still grows on).:

c.cimiciodora.160716.1

The second one is the usual Ceropegia linearis ssp. woodii, however, in this case it is at least a plant of the ‘debilis‘ form (it seems to be there unintended as it is not labelled at all).:
