Crying or Very sad

My kids' mum moved a stack of my asclepiads from her place to my mum's, where I'm staying until I can put a studio up on my acreage, and they did not take care...

A lot of my plants which were formerly kept indoors went out on to an open veranda, with full exposure to almost freezing temperatures, and because I was away for a few days I didn't catch them. When I finally figured out what they'd done, a lot of my plants had curled up their roots. The hardest to take was the complete disintegration of an Orbea semota lutea and an Orbea decaisneana.

I have about a centimeter of the former left - I've been whittling it back and back to try to stop the black rot that keeps appearing. The decaisneana just fell apart and is no more...

And I'm not sure about my H. hislopii, or about a few other Huernias...

I'm shattered.

Well, the Orbea semota lutea rotted toward the tip until what was left just dehydrated.

The hislopii is about to cark it too. I guess that I can source another one of those easily enough, but after much frantic searching I have found no Orbea semota lutea or Orbea decaisneana, and the bloke I bought the original plants from has disappeared.

Anyone here have a plant of either that they'd be willing to sell me a cutting from?
