Stapelia hirsuta

Recommended Posts

Stapelia hirsuta flowering for the first time, very pleased except I bought it as Stapelia gigantea and have just waited three year to find it isn't!

The original photo was taken a few days ago. I've just had a closer look today and if you look at the photo below you can see little white spots which are fly eggs and maggots, the flower smells of rotten flesh ( though I have no sense of smell so cannot vouch for this) but the flies seem to be fooled.
