I admit to liking these too. I have quite a few pachypodiums, Diascorea elaphantipes and hemicrypta, Fockea edulis and Kedrostis africana.

Hi Vicki and welcome to the forum cheers

Would love to see pictures of your plants. Caudiciforms IMO are certainly one of the best plants keep........I am very bias I am afraid Wink

I am chasing a couple of dioscorea elephantipes at the moment that are certainly beautiful

Dioscorea elephantipes are wierd and I am very tempted to try and grow from seed. Anyone know how fast they grow?

Hi Cal all I can say is verrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry slow

I have two year old ones and a golf ball would still have em for breaky Rolling Eyes

But I have to bury them as I have just been told and read that to keep them buried does make them grow quicker..............well a little Wink

Thanks Betty - might wait for the xmas growers lists to come out and see if I can pick one up - seeds might be forever.

hmmmm .. B!... Caudiciform -
to be honest it could have been something completely different - I just think it was because it looked like a little swollen tubers of a plant with leaves coming out the top
- There were 3 10c piece sized blobs in a small pot for $3.50 - they had some larger ones for $40 (I think)
I don't actually think the prices are particularly good at Hamiltonís.

They have some rare plants under a cage that I think are very overpriced - small lophophora, turbinicarpus & ariocarpus for $30 & $40 imported from Europe. Smile
