An update on my mini dish garden

My Monadenium cuttings started producing offshoots beneath the ground, ruining the appearance of my little garden (very quickly realized that the roots had travelled to the opposite side of the planter as well), so I had to replace them with a different type of plant.
The Stapelia seemed like an obvious choice – at least until they outgrow the little landscape. They probably should have been transferred to a bigger planter months ago anyway.

In this planter: Euphorbia Obesa (1 year + 5 months old), Stapelia Grandiflora (9 months old), Lophophora Williamsii (1 year + 7 months old) and a Frithia Pulchra

Unidentified stapeliads

I promise, I didn’t look for more succulents when I was doing my grocery shopping today. My eyes just landed on this absolute sea of unidentified stapeliads (or as the label said, “cactus mix”).

They do look like my Stapelia Grandiflora seedlings (now 5 months + 2 weeks old) in the upper right pic, but so do pretty much all varieties of this plant if they’re not flowering.

EDIT (April 12 – 2017): Did a bit of research and found that they are likely to be Stapelia Desmetiana, based on what Danish B2B nurseries sell at the moment
