CARALLUMA socotrana (3 s)

Author: (Balf.f.) N.E.Br.
Family: Asclepiadaceae
Habitat : Socotra


Caralluma socotrana is one of the most bizarre species of the genus, with symmetrically articulated stems that give it the appearance of a pale green coral. But its special feature is its unique, almost glittering vermilion flowers. It is one of the most spectacular of all succulent milkweeds. It is closely related to Caralluma cicatricosa.

Soil : not too rich but mainly well drained
Sow in tray covered with a plate of glass. Keep the substrate slightly moist and aerate regularly. Attention, mushrooms appreciate these confined temperatures so it will be necessary to watch that they do not develop. Seeds treatment before sowing may be considered as well as after sowing.
