Wao………….. … u got Ceropegia flowering. very nice shot. wait for the ID for species


I thought of Ceropegia vincifolia but not sure.


looks like Ceropegia bulbosa only.


Plant is definitely Ceropegia. Seems to be bulbosa but could be other species. It would be most appropriate to concern …


even to me C. bulbosa


Yes, it is Ceropegia bulbosa var. bulbosa


Yes, it is Ceropegia bulbosa var. bulbosa.

Ceropegia bulbosa two varieties Pune:  Observed today the two varieties of Ceropegia bulbosa growing close to each other.
Both were creeping twiners. Total length of the whole plant around one foot.
Flowers in cymes of 2-3 axillary. size 3cm. The corolla was twisted in some of the flowers while the fresh flowers had it crisp and straight. Very hairy.
Variety bulbosa had leaves orbicular ovate.
Variety lushii had leaves linear to lanceolate.
Flowers were similar in both.

Sorry. According to me these are photograph of Aristolochia species. May be Aristolochia indica


Fantastic catches of Ceropegia


ya it is not A. indica. but look like Aristolochia indica


Nice observation and also clear my thought about the liner and ovate leaf in C. bulbosa.

But any one can provide the reference literature for the same ?


Thanks for your comments. I have referred and quoted this information here from Flora of Mah. BSI.
… Yes to some extent it does look like Aristolochia but I am pretty sure and checked several sites before confirming this species. Please have a relook. I can clearly observe the lantern like corolla here which is characteristic of Ceropegia. Flowers are actinomorphic here whereas they are zygomorphic in Aristolochia. Still if you have any comments please feel free to discuss. I am open for discussion.

I could follow this plant again on 21 Sep 2012. There was only one variety at that time Ceropegia bulbosa var. luschii with hardly any leaves remaining and an occasional small size flower.
Surprsingly I found fruiting. The fruit appears to be typical Asclepiadaceae with two horns. The size is 5-6 times the size of the flower.
Attaching the images.
