    And hopefully many many more species blooming this year. Have around 50-60 species.
     
  5. Wow ! I am as impressed with your plants as I am with most peoples T collections ( that's meant to be a compliment)
    I really like the Stapelia grandiflora.

    Very cool. I've always wanted a blooming Stapelia, but never had any luck with them.

    Sunlight is most important and for many species a cool period in winter. But many of the bigger Stapelia species are quite easy in the windowsill.

    Stapelia gigantea is really easy, big and a bit smelly :evil: Do you have a window towards the south? Without central heating would be perfect. Over here in the Netherlands, S. gigantea is doing great, so in most parts of the US it should do perfect. But there are many more species which do great in your windowsill. Send me a PM and I can see what species you could keep.

    It's so great to open your greenhouse and see a swarm of flies and the smell of a dead animal which baked in the sun for 3 weeks in a puddle of water :wicked:

    Also have some Aroids (Amorphophallus konjac), flower about 1,5 meters high and smells like a dead horse. My bulbs are still small, so will take about 2 years untill I will have a flower.

    Sweet collection! I currently only have Huernia zebrina and Huernia schneideriana. So many plants, so little space.
