Stapelia - do not know which one. Beautiful, but I planted way down in the garden because of smell!
Stapelia flavopurpurea This crawling and decumbent cactus - like plant with long, green stems that acquire a purple color when exposed to full sun. Flowers are little star shaped and range from a bright yellow to greenish color, with maroon overtones and centers. They have a light sweet smell like beeswax, unusual in the stapelia group. This beautiful plant is now in flower at Babylonstoren succulent house.
**Stapelias** Very waterwise and requires minimal to no care. #succulents #Asclepiads
Got this piece of a stapelia grandifloria from a friend of mines mom which we traded plants. I traded her donkey tails plant for this stapelia grandifloria to add it to my cactus garden of one of a kind unique feature. So excited. I let this cutting dry for two and a half days and dipped it in rooting hormone, potted it into soil. Now it's the time to wait for those roots to grow😁😁
