Stapelia lipida is my fave right now

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.
