Caralluma melanantha was earlier known as the 'Caralluma with black flowers'. The flowers are blackish or dark purple-brown in sessile umbels of 3-10 on a very short spur from middle or upper stem. The denticles on the stem teeth are prominent on young sterns, but as the stems thicken the denticles are reduced to scars. It is a summer-autumn bloomer.

Sun exposure: Partial sun to light shade

Very Nice, but delicate

I received this plant a couple months ago, very robust- it handled the summer heat without any problems and took on a nice purple hue, however once temperatures started to go down, I noticed that it was beginning to succumb to rot. Perhaps this one is very sensitive to regular water or the cold, either way it’s worth a try
