Interesting plant. The stems remind me of Mistletoe. Is it one of your greenhouse succulents?

Thank you. It is related to the 'mistletoe cactus' which has white berries. I'm sure I've put a photo of it in the past.

Pilocarpus are the new collectible now. I have two types!..lol Most of the really hard to get types are only for sale on the internet. Or,in Los Angeles where they are the hot plant species.
That one has a great large bloom Hywel. Nice!

Thank you … I have several different types of these including R. pilocarpa. I bought them in a local garden centre several years ago.
Actually these flowers are quite small. They may look big because the photo is taken close up.
This is the first time for it to flower.

Its a larger bloom then pilocarpus. The other that I have is lost to memory. Its a much shorter type and even after 3 years now is only 6-8" in a basket. Pilocarpus can hang at least 3'. That one I have on a furry Trachycarpus palm.

In the thumbnail version it looked for all the world like a hanging Snowdrop! congratulations on it flowering for the first time!

Stan, I have seen photos of polcarpus growing on trees in Brazil and it hangs down many feet.
It must look nice on your palm.
Mine is in a pot and it is about a foot long but has several branches.

Thank you Balcony …
