Ceropegia   (Price 20-25 lt.)

Ceropegia can be evergreen or semi-evergreen, erect, climbing to trailing, usually succulent, perennials with opposite leaves and curioously shaped flowers in summer, sometimes followed by cylindrical fruits containing silky tufted seeds. This plant is an evergreen succulent perenial, with twining stems bearing heart-shaped leaves and solitary green parachute-shaped flowers with a funnel-shaped tube to 5cm in length, in summer.
Give your plants as much light as possible, many species grow little or no leaves and most of the photosynthesis is done by the stem. Sufficient light is key in flowering, when plants refuse to bloom for several years in a row you might want to consider moving them to a brighter spot.
