Beautiful set of photographs of a beautiful plant. The plant looks quite distinct from other Ceropegias!

Thanks for confirming the id, but, in Foi website the photo of the same species looks different with ? stigma protruding out. Please have a look and confirm.

This is Ceropegia candelabrum var. candelabrum. It is found in Pulni hills area. Nice capture of this beautiful Ceropegia

…, it is not stigma, it is the beak of the corolla. The species in FOI is Ceropegia candelabrum var. biflora.
BTW, Ceropegia candelabrum is the type species for the genus.

This is indeed ceropegia candlebrum

please help me to identify this climber found in hilly areas of Kerala details are:

Date/Time- 17th Nov. 2013

Location- Kerala, Kottayam GPS: Longitude 76;46;10.9 Latitude 9;43;38.47

Habitat – Wild

Plant Habit- Climber

Height/Length- climbing on ground vegetation

Leaves Size- around 5cm long

Inflorescence- Axilliary


Fruits –

Ceropegia species, probably C. bulbosa.

This is Ceropegia candelabrum subsp. candelabrum. Very beautiful plant. This is the type species for Ceropegia.

Agree with … Ceropegia candelabrum L. proper.

Thanks … for the id. Mine was however only suggestive. Ceropegia candelabrum was the name first came to my mind, too. But, the flowers suppose to have long (about 1 cm) corolla-beaks (‘candlestick’ -like!), right?! http://www.flowersofindia.CandlestickCeropegia.html. The posted pictures have shorter beaks. Even the leaves looked different to me. I have seen only broader, not-so-fleshy leaves. But you should be right…

Marathi: कानवेल Kanwel ??

Thanks …
कानवेल kanwel or kanvel is apt for Ceropegia juncea Roxb., however there are references listing this name for at least another two species of Ceropegia: C. tuberosa Roxb. and C. bulbosa Roxb.
Ceropegia tuberosa Roxb. (considered as syn. of Ceropegia candelabrum subsp. tuberosa OR Ceropegia candelabrum subsp. biflora)
Ceropegia juncea Roxb.
Indian Medicinal Plants: An Illustrated Dictionary by C.P. Khare
Ceropegia bulbosa Roxb.

Excellent photograph and wonderful presentation.
