Angolluma is a genus of succulent plants in the milkweed, or Asclepiadaceae, family, under the tribe of Stapeliae in the subfamily Asclepiadoideae.

Description[edit]

Like most milkweeds, Angollumas have fleshy, water-holding stems adorned with soft and fleshy spines and equally fleshy, luridly colourful six-petalled flowers.

Cultivation[edit]

Caring for Angollumas can be difficult due to how easily their roots rot and die if overwatered at any one time.
