Mission: Ceropegia II
Last year, around the same time, when I settled on my Ceropegia quest due to the end of season, I had definite plans (and even bigger plans) to continue the quest next year so that I can take a big jump in my Ceropegia tally. But come 2020, and since March, all the plans had gone in vain due to pandemic; so my mission actually seemed impossible. In the first week of September, I had an unexpected nature trip to Torna Fort (Prachandgad). Usually, by the time of September, Ceropegia's pollination is over and it starts fruiting. During that trip, I saw flowers of 3 species of Ceropegia. Even though none of the 3 species were lifers for me, I felt lucky to see those in flowering.
