Hi Mike,
It's a long time since I grew any Stapelia type plants, and they seem quite hard to come by(buy) these days.
But here's my little offering, can't find any photos of the others I once had.

Anyone got any cuttings or spares to sell, it would be good to get a few again.

Best wishes.

Mel.

I think your Huernia is H. schneideriana, but might be wrong...

Hi Diane,
Thanks for the ID, but sorry to say it's a plant I don't have any more! a Shame.
Regards

I think that's Huernia pillansii Peter. Not a Hoodia.

I wanted to tell you the story behind my plant..... I have a succulent book with beautiful black and white photos of a Hoodia and was always interested in having one, this was 40 years ago. Moved to Santa Cruz and visited a succulent nursery and picked this plant up, no label. The owner was a really old fiend, and said "if you know the name you can have it." So out came "Hoodia" and he gave it to me.....

Here's some of my seedling Hoodias to show the difference Peter. Unfortunately I lost my mature Hoodias in my house move. I'm sure there are others who could show you a mature specimen.
