The Nydus Worm Plant

aka Pleiospilos nelii "Royal Flush"

My only non-lithops acquisition from Conos Paradise. I've got two seedlings of some sort of Pleiospilos hybrid, and have seeds for regularly coloured Pleiospilos nelii, but I just couldn't pass up this red variety.

From the side it reminds me of the Nydus Worm from Starcraft 2. Not so much a direct resemblance, but both plant and worm have a similar, om-nommy air about them.
