Trichocaulon cactiforme
Trichocaulon cactiforme
The taxonomists have had a field day in recent years with this plant, placing it in variously named genera in honour of Larry Leach, but most hobbyists seem content to retain their old labels! Whatever it is called this South African plant, from Cape Province, is a beauty. Its globose stems elongating with age, occasionally offsetting, produce large numbers of these smallish flowers.
