Ceropegia simoneae seed follicles

Post by Stig » Thu Nov 25, 2021 7:07 pm

Following on form my post showing the dimorpha seed follicles here are some C. simoneae ones. There are three different clones with two sets of seed follicles each, the largest are 19cm tip to tip, shorter than the dimorpha ones but much thicker. Hopefully they will reach maturity soon.

Impressive. I've not seen the dimorphic growth of this before.
