Candelaber Flowers from the Canary Islands are highly succulent perennials with long, ascending, wax-covered stems and axillary or terminal clusters of yellow (Ceropegia dichotoma agg.) or maroon-red (Ceropegia fusca) flowers, which are followed by long, horn-like seed capsules. For a very well drained, preferably rocky soil in always full sun throughout the year. Keep drier in winter and carefully water in summer, so that the soil will never dry out completely. Winter minimum of some 15°C to 20°C, winter growing and summer dormant species.
Sow flat on a very well drained, rocky soil at some 20° to 25°C maximim. Higher temperature will inhibit germination in these species! A temperature drop down to 15°C at night will enhance germination. Keep soil only slightly moist until germination starts, then keep seedlings drier and in full sun. Seedlings greatly dislike to be transplanted in their first year. Easily raised from seed, yet seed from most species will rarely become available as plants only sporadically set seed in cultivation.
