Didiereaceae Family

I do like plants in the Didiereaceae Family but only have a few.
They are:
Didierea madagascariensis
Alluaudia comosa
Alluaudia procera
Alluaudia dumosa

Wikipedia says, Didiereaceae is a small family of just four genera and 11 species of flowering plants endemic to south and southwest Madagascar.

Alluaudia ascendens
Alluaudia comosa
Alluaudia dumosa
Alluaudia humbertii
Alluaudia montagnacii – probably a natural hybrid of A. ascendens and A. procera
Alluaudia procera – quite easy grown and the most frequent species in cultivation

Alluaudiopsis fiherensis
Alluaudiopsis marnieriana

Decaria madagascariensis

Didierea madagascariensis
Didierea trollii
