Stapelia is a genus of plants in Apocynaceae that has unmistakeable flowers, as well as scent.

Most Stapelia smell like rotting animals to attract flies for pollination.

Here are some pictures of my Stapelia grandiflora.

Thumb of 2010-08-28/mekos/a806d2 Well, I'm waiting for blooms on mine, not sure about the color because it was a cutting last year from another person. Can't remember what color they said it would be.:blinking:

Hetty- I think your plant might be S.gigantea!
How big were the flowers?

That is Stapelia gigantea! Drooling

The blooms on mine are smaller, I had it identified as a variation of S.grandiflora

I would love one if you have enough. When mine blooms so we can see what it is, if it is different, I'll gladly share with you guys. Big Grin

Charleen, I am pretty sure that is actually a Huernia. Close relative to Stapelias!
