Ceropegia (Canary Candelaber Flower)

Candelaber Flowers from the Canary Islands are highly succulent perennials with long, ascending, wax-covered stems and axillary or terminal clusters of yellow (Ceropegia dichotoma agg.) or maroon red (Ceropegia fusca) flowers, which are followed by long, horn-like seed capsules. For a very well drained, preferably rocky and rather inorganic substrate in full sun throughout the year. Keep plants almost completely dry in winter at a minimum of some 10°C and carefully water in summer.
Sow flat on a very well drained, inorganic substrate at some 20° to 25°C maximum. Higher temperature will inhibit germination in these species! A temperature drop down to 15°C at night will enhance germination. Keep soil only slightly moist until germination starts, then keep seedlings drier and in full sun. Seedlings greatly dislike to be transplanted in their first year. Easily raised from seed, yet seed from most species will rarely become available as plants only sporadically set seed in cultivation.
