SKU: SG-3 Categories: , ,


Stapelia gigantea commonly called the Carrion Flower, Star Fish Flower, or Giant Zulu. But here we like to call it the Star Fart flower. Dark green succulent cactus like foliage grows up around 6 to 8 inches tall producing a nice plant once mature the plant will produce a large bud and then opens up a beautiful light yellow like flower with brown stripped markings and fine hair like structures. The star like flower can grow up to 1 foot across but most average around 6 to 8 inches. The biggest and selling or non-selling feature to the plant is the fact that the flowers smell like death. Often confused as a dead animal it draws in the much needed pollinator to help pollinate plant which is flies. So if your looking forthe perfect plant for the Ex or mother in law look no further.
