I bought this plant a while back and have no idea what it is... A Euphorbia maybe?
What is this?
Maybe a Hoodia sp. You will have to wait for the flower to know for sure which.
Hoodia with a twist! LOL. Faeden, it may be.
oh interesting... maybe once it flowers, we'll know for sure! Thanks....
I think I found it! I think it's a Euphorphia jansenvillensis
When I got the plant, it looked just like the one in the pic where part of the stem is meant to be planted below the soil-line. I think this is it... and the person who sold it to me said it was a Euphorbia so maybe???
I do not believe this is a Euphorbia at all, but a Stapeliad, as noted above by Sally. Nick it somewhere it won't show - do you get milky white sap? If not, it's not a Euphorbia.
Thanks! I certainly wouldn't have ID'd it as a Euphorbia. Shows how much I know! LOL
I picked up a piece of this plant or its twin at my local cactus & succulent club's June study group. It's cute and it forms large clumps.
I don't think its a Euphorbia either.. Not that I know that much. I guess. you will no for sure when it blooms. My Euphorbias all bloom easily.
My close-looking cousin to this plant came to me as Euphorbia nesemanii from very knowledgeable folks at the San Gabriel Valley CSS study group, "Vegetative Propagation", in May 2011. It was said to have been a onetime ISI offering... mine is spineless like the original poster's, unlike some of the pictures I've found so far. I wasn't bowled over by the plant that night, but the more I read about it, the more I'm interested.
Those are cool -- definitely not the same plant as the original poster's. Nice variations on a theme.
The link is a wonderful site for Euphorbia information Helen. Thanks for posting it.
