Hans-Joachim Schlieben, Succulent Collector Extraordinary

Hans-Joachim Schlieben

Hans-Joachim Schlieben

I remember as child, family visits to my uncle Hans-Joachim and his family in Pretoria. These visits would change my life forever. He had the most amazing plant collection and most of his property was converted to a giant terrarium with exotic plants, mostly succulents collected from all over the world. My plant and stamp collection hobbies started with uncle’s guidance while his wife our dear Aunt Klara started teaching us the basics of music. I was truly blessed with these great teachers guiding met at an early age.

Hans-Joachim Eberhardt Schlieben was born in Germany in 1902. Between 1930 and 1935 he collected plants in Tanzania and since 1955 in Southern Africa, on Madagascar, the Mascarenes, the Comoro Islands and the Seychelles. Almost 400 of the approximately 13 000 numbers which he has collected have been described as new.
