Stapelia gettliffei Blooms
I bought this Stapelia gettliffei just a month or so ago. I knew it was related to the plant commonly known as carrion plant, or at least that fact hit me just about when I was paying for it. I knew the name had sounded familiar. This Stapelia is an interesting succulent, with very soft, velvety stems, quite different from the average succulent, or at least from any that I have.
I've been busy with visiting family so I really was pretty surprised when I looked across the patio table this morning and said "What is that??!!"
