This is a rare oddity from South Africa with beautiful flowers. Most of the time, this plant looks basically like a set of short, green stems, but it can produce many gorgeous maroon colored flowers that resemble starfish! Stapelia flowers are pollinated by flies, so they have evolved to look (and sometimes smell) like rotting meat. S. paniculata scitula doesn't have the foul odor of some stapeliads, but its flowers are fleshy, textured, and fringed with long hairs. The stems can take on a purple tint when grown in bright sunlight.

Light: Bright, filtered light - indoors near a window or shaded outdoors.

Water: Water well only when completely dry. Reduce watering during the winter dormancy period.

Pets: Non-toxic

Ships in a 4" grow pot with soil.
