I would agree with Stillman,

Huernia schneideriana has the common name "Red Dragon Flower", if that helps :).

Cheers

PS; It is actually a succulent, not a cactus. :wink:

Sweet. Looking forward to it flowering to get a specific ID. Any word if they're self-fertile?

Awesome. This genus is um really doing it for me ha. Anyone have any seeds perchance? Quite pricy on ebay...

Huernia oculata

This isn't even one of the more wild looking ones! Stapelia is fascinating as well, along with stinky as hell as I recall working at a nursery couple years ago.

Hi vadub,

They are awesome plants & I am always chasing new additions.

I was going to offer you a Stapelia leendertziae plant/cutting, but notice your location "mild Atlantic" :unsure:. If you were in Australia I'm sure there would be members that could set you up with a few plants.

Cheers

That's very generous but no worries!

All that matters is that I am now more familiar with the Asclepiadoideae sub-family that houses soo so many badass genus(s). Stapelianthus, Huernia, Stapelia and I know there are more...

Stapelianthus madagascariensis
