Very nice, when did you sow these?

Awesome caudiciforms! You seem to have a very nice collection of them. :) I've been meaning to get more caudex plants, but so far I've just got the fairly plain ones like Fockea, Adenium and Dioscorea. :P Some Ipomoea species look great and that Pterodiscus is a gem. =D> Any suggestions for other nice caudiciform species?

Happy growing!

There is always one more glochid. Somewhere.

Thanks folks, These plants are about five years of age. Yes all of those Adenium obesum are from seed.

And as for " Any suggestions for other nice caudiciform species?" ....What ever you can get your hands on. I like them all.

Nice plants. Unfortunately my order from Out of Africa this summer came infested with thrips and maybe other stuff. I've had better luck with them in the past. =D>
Testking has no match in quality and standard. It has simply superb web source for your assistance in NET admission test for more information to visit Curam for more details to visit Youtube and also see on MECP Best of luck.

Love the caudicforms, I have some, but can only claim two accidental seedlings... Apparently you can't stop some Jatropha!
