Ceropegia papillata N.E.Brown is native to Tanzania, Malawi, DRC and Zambia growing in grasslands and open woodlands. Growth appears at the start of the rains with the flowers appearing in the axils of the leaves several months later. Easily grown in a well drained potting mix in full sun to light shade with ample water in the growing period and kept dry during dormancy.
