 Ceropegia ampliata
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Horny Wonder, Bushman's pipe, Condom Plant, Boesmanpypblom
Origin: South Africa
Vine or creeperFull sunSemi-shadeModerate waterWhite/off-white flowersUnusual color

This is one of the most interesting plants you ever see. Nearly leafless rambling stems produce 3" inflated balloon-like flowers of white and yellow pin stripes, topped with emerald green birdcages. Thick, twining succulent stems are well suited for hanging basket culture or for trellises. The flower tube is white with green nerves outside, the base is banded purplish, to 1 inch across. It has a unique method of pollination. The tubular 2½ inch flowers are lined inside with downward pointing hairs that temporarily trap insects. They are then released the next day covered with pollen. With thick leafless twining stems, it is best displayed in a hanging basket. Plant in partial shade with a well-draining cactus mix and allow to dry out between waterings.

The plant needs at least 4 hours of direct sunlight per day and can withstand a fair amount of drought. Water well and wait until the soil has thoroughly dried before watering again. Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every third watering from May to October. From October to May water only enough to keep the stems from shriveling.

Ceropegia linearis subsp. woodii, Rosary Vine, Chain of hearts

Click to see full-size image Ceropegia linearis subsp. woodii
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Rosary Vine, Chain of hearts
Origin: Southeastern Africa
Vine or creeperSemi-shadeRegular waterModerate waterUnusual colorOrnamental foliage

The vines of the Rosary plant are like thin wires with marbled, heart shaped leaves. They will reach two to four feet in length, so the plant should be hung or set on a pedestal where it will receive bright light for most of the day. Ceropegias prefer summer temperatures around 70-75 degrees, but during the winter, when it is dormant, it should be kept in a cooler room if possible (60-65 degrees). This plant is somewhat succulent, so be careful to never overwater, or allow it to set in water. Water thoroughly, and then allow the soil to completely dry out before watering again. During the active growing period of spring and summer, the Rosary plant should be fed monthly with an all purpose liquid houseplant food diluted to half strength. Use a porous potting soil with coarse sand added when you repot this vine in early spring, making sure to provide adequate drainage.Two unique features of the Rosary vine are the flowers and the 'beads'. The slender flowers resemble an inverted, small pink vase. The end of the tube is partly closed by delicate purple bars. You'll find that hummingbirds are attracted to the flowers if your plant is placed outdoors during the summer months. The beads are small tubers which form along the stem at the leaf bases. These beads can be planted to produce new vines. Just press the tuber into the soil, and keep it moist (not wet) If possible, plant the bead while it is still attached to the mother plant, for speedier rooting. Once rooted and growing, the new plant can be easily severed from the main plant.

The Rosary plant makes an excellent house plant due to it's durability. It can withstand neglect, dry air, or drought, and bounce back with a single watering. The vines of the Rosary plant are like thin wires with marbled, heart shaped leaves, that may get pinkish in bright light. The stems will reach two to four feet in length, so the plant should be hung or set on a pedestal where it will receive bright light for most of the day. Ceropegias prefer summer temperatures around 70-75F, but during the winter, when it is dormant, it should be kept in a cooler room if possible (60-65F). This plant is somewhat succulent, so be careful to never overwater, or allow it to set in water. Water thoroughly, and then allow the soil to completely dry out before watering again.

Origin: Madagascar

The India Rubber Vine originates from Madagascar and was formerly grown there and later in India to produce a poor quality rubber latex. Has large (2" across), showy, lilac flowers with a broad funnel-shaped tube and five spreading lobes. Leaves are very ornamental, wide, deep green and waxy. This exotic woody vine poses a significant threat to northern Australian savanna landscapes. The Rubber Vine is poisonous it contains glucosides interfering with the heart, and ingesting with provoke stomach and intestinal upset. When trimming wear gloves since the sap is very irritating to the skin, and discard what you trimmed rapidly, because the dust from dried plants is also irritating.

Origin: Western Africa
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSmall shrub 2-5 ftFull sunShadeSemi-shadeModerate waterDry conditionsYellow/orange flowersIrritatingEthnomedical plant.
Plants marked as ethnomedical and/or described as medicinal, are not offered as medicine but rather as ornamentals or plant collectibles.
Ethnomedical statements / products have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. We urge all customers to consult a physician before using any supplements, herbals or medicines advertised here or elsewhere.

Cynanchum viminale is a leafless succulent plant with cylindrical, green photosynthetic stems. The plant may grow as a shrub or a scandent vine. The stems produce copious amounts of milky exudate when broken. This exudate is caustic in nature and can cause burns if it contacts human skin. The plant produces small white flowers in clusters.

Toxicity appears to be variable, even locally.

An interesting plant for succulent, cactus and rock/cliff gardens and spilling over dry walls. It also does well in hanging containers.

Dischidia minor, Dischidia nummularia, Kadul, Button Orchid

Click to see full-size image Dischidia minor, Dischidia nummularia
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Kadul, Button Orchid
Origin: Malaya, Australia
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftVine or creeperSemi-shadeEpiphyteModerate waterOrnamental foliage

Climbing by attaching its roots to the host tree, this epiphyte can reach a height 9 ft. It has pendent stems, and small button-like, silver-grey leaves. The inflorescence is an umbel of small white tubular flowers with a ring of sparse hairs inside. Masses of fluffy seeds develop after the blooms have faded. It prefers a heavily shaded position in a drought, and frost free area. Fresh seed is sometimes used to propagate this plant, or by division in warm, and moist greenhouse conditions. It lives on many types of trees but mostly paperbark trees (Melaleuca species) on rainforest borders. This little vine has cute little coin shaped leaves and can be variegated with cream and gray. It can be grown as a hanging basket or pot, or on moss or bark. It likes bright light but not direct sun over the plant. The mix needs to be kept moderately dry between waterings. They don't like too much water and misting the plant once or twice a week should do the job. Liquid feeding once a month with half strength is adequate. It is also good for terrariums.
