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).:

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 …

ebay.200216.2

something from inside … 🙂

ebay.200216.3

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 ….
