I bought this at the fall HPSO sale in 2011 and have been waiting for the weirdly wonderful blooms ever since. The plant has been sitting on the corner of R’s desk. The other day he was sniffing around, changing the cat box, etc. when he finally realized that the smell was coming from Stapelia lipida. It’s now on my desk and I don’t smell a thing. I’m not sure I would mind a little stink as a tradeoff for these wacky flowers.
Trundle on over to Danger Garden if you’d like to see her weekly favorite. Don’t neglect the comments for others’ faves as well.
I can see why that’s a favorite. I’ve never heard of this plant before! Looks like a fun potted plant to have around.
Beth~As long as your nose works like mine.
They are such bizarre flowers!
I love that plant, especially the crazy flowers. Do they last long?
Such a cool plant!
Amy~Ain’t it the truth.
Loree~I’ll let you know.
Alison~Cool is exactly the right word.
