Today I finally received one of my few "grail" species!
Here's my first Somalian asclepiad Pseudolithos cubiformis
My plant shown above is a whopping 7/8" in diameter! Eventually it gets to about 4". They often develop into a nice solitary cube of living brown reptile skin. Sometimes they get tall and look like a featureless, flabby Jabba the Hut (which is cool too).
The image below I culled from google showing a pretty nice cube shaped flowering sized plant that I hope to have someday.
Is anyone else here growing these? Mine will be under lights year round (85-95*F days and 70*F nights) so I'll never have worries over the notorious "winter rot" which kills so many in cultivation by being wet & cold at the same time.
I potted it dry in Shultz aquatic plant soil, perlite & coir. This gravelly rock mix drains super fast and dries out in 2-3 days. I put it in a humidity dome in the over cast light of my anole tank for now to let it come back gradually over a day or so from bareroot shipping before getting watered and going under the lights.
