I see The Indoor Garden(er) got his stapeliad back to DC safely from Berkeley. The story of how this Stapelia got to DC started in Iowa, where  Plants Are The Strangest People blogged about one first, leading The Indoor garden(er) to stop by the store and pick one up on his travels.

Iowa –> DC –> Berkeley

The circle of life!

By the way, we subscribe to the Stapelia theory of stapeliads, and do not approve of the Orbea theory of stapeliads.
