Huernia cacti/succulents have absolutely the most gorgeous flowers ever (especially huernia zebrina). I was wondering if anyone cultivates any, I have yet to get my hands on these plants lol. I can't find much care info on these guys online so some cultivation tips would be great!

I've grown Stapeliads on and off. They are really interesting plants as are all the succulent milkweed genera (Apocynaceae). I've bought from a number of vendors on this site and they have all been good. They have lots of stapeliads, seeds/plants/cuttings. Their prices are excellent. I would ask them to just ship the plants without any documentation maybe with a somewhat imaginative label. You will likely not get intercepted and for the price, you can afford to lose one every now and then. One day I'll probably be tempted. They will do well if treated as any tropical succulent.
I have one too but I'll have to dig up the name. The pics are of a stem that grew too tall and broke off the main plant. I just tossed it with one of my other plants and it's flowering The main plant also flowers regularly but it's a small plant and no noticeable odor. Just pretty flowers.
Edit : The forum won't let me attach the pics. What's up with that ??
