Heh, I call Huernias the swollen a$$ plant *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
Khai, I believe those two pics you posted are Stapelia, not Huernia.
I'll see if I can contact him. He's Gert Kruger, and a lithops grower and exporter. You should see his stuff. He's going through some stuff, though, and I hope where he's moved they have internet access.

I realize they are Stepelia I was just posting them as some examples of this extremly variable family.
Amazing, I've never seen such flowers.
Nice pics guys.
Trust me, they're better to see than to smell!
I'll take your word for it, I'm not much of a cactus person anyways. Too cold in the winter and the kids wouldn't like them in the house.
I have one of these plants but I don't know what kind. I got it from a friend of the family in sunny California. I live in cold michigan. It's a house plant now but was grow outdoors in CA. and was flowering like crazy. Mine has been grown indoors now for two years and has never flowered! Does anyone know how to get these things to flower? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]
put it outside in the summer. But gradually, dont burn it.
I tried that last summer but no flowers. *I will try again this summer. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
