I'm keen to try growing some Asclepiads. Can anybody recommend something easy enough for a beginner to keep and hopefully get to flower. Has to be something available to buy in UK too I suppose.

How about Ceropegia carnosa? Tis a weed! :laugh: Or Ceropegia woodii. Orbea variegata is also very nice. Haven´t managed to get it into flower though... :dry:

Huernia zebrina is very beautiful. I don´t have it yet.

I've grown stapelia variegata from seed without any skill, just left the seed on a moist soil/sand 50/50 mix. As long as you give them a dry season and don't keep them too wet (look out for mealy bugs!!) they grow very fast.

Thanks everybody, these all sound very good to get my interest going. Has anybody had any experience with the International Asclepiad Society?

Stephen, I sent a PM.

Thanks again everybody...I'll probably be coming back for growing advice soon :)
