Rhytidocaulon macrolobum ssp macrolobum

Rhytidocaulon macrolobum ssp. macrolobum flower buds are covering this plant. Very small. We have been growing this now for 3 years and the first crop of cuttings are looking good. So maybe they will be ready by spring? I can’t wait!

In the Stapeliad family. This used to be it’s own family, but then it got moved into the Milkweed Family (Asclepiaceae) but now it’s in the Dogbane Family (Apocynaceae) and the Milkweeds are a Subfamily (Asclepiadoideae) of the Dogbanes and the Stapeliads are a Tribe (Stapeliae) of the Milkweeds. That means that the Pachypodiums and the Hoyas are in the same Family? That can’t be right.

Anyway, the Rhytidocaulon has soft stems, rich dark green color with 1/2″ green striped blooms. Keep warm and dry.
