Stapelia gigantea from own propagation of head cuttings; originating from Africa (where it is even partly regarded as an invasive plant); succulent; from own collection; with time it becomes quite compact and creeping on the ground; potted up in a well-drained self-mixed organic substrate; repotting only desired in 1-2 years, not overfertilised therefore robust & healthy (100% organic quality before quantity!). ), no sprays; slow growing, certainly flowering in 1-2years, not hardy, for a partial shade location, please no waterlogging; enjoy your new flowering Stapelia gigantea!

"Love stinks", or at least it does when Stapelia gigantea flowers. It bears beautiful, showy, red and yellow striped flowers with white fringes, the pattern of which you will lose yourself in. But if you lean in to smell, you will be surprised to find a smell of rotting flesh. This is how the stapelia has evolved to attract its native pollinators, the flies! It likes to form clumps and flowers from spring to autumn, but it really gets going in summer, where each new growth bears one of its large flowers, which are sure to impress.
