For the second year in a row this beauty has giant flower buds. Hopefully they smell less vile this year...

Wow! That is a very impressive flower! Will it bloom for awhile or are the flowers short lived?

@gjones This is the first time I've had this one bloom, so I'm not really sure! Going on a week right now and the oldest flower hasn't started to fade yet. Luckily they smell strongest in the afternoon, when I'm normally at work!

That's fairly long for such a big flower!

The flowers are fantastic on these plants! Is this the plant where the flower smells a bit foul or do I have the wrong plant in mind?

@gjones I've only seen them in photos but they look amazing! I have also heard they smell like rotting death though

Got a bloom coming up on my stapelia! Time to find out if it's actually a gigantea

Not sure what this one is. The guy at the greenhouse told me it has balloon shaped yellow flowers that smell terrible. Obviously I had to buy it immediately. #plantid
