Well I got these strange bean things popping out in several places on this plant and they look like flowers stems but the end look nothing like the flower buds it had before. All of them are in twos and it has me puzzled 🤔 #planthelp @emch @sunlovin @txgardener @sarahssassysucculents

By that do you mean strictly Orbeas, @docthrill ? Or some of the other cousins in this clan? There are so many wild ones

2w
comment
docthrill

Both I guess @emch just seen pictures. This one is the only one I’ve ever seen with my own eyes 👀 I do know that one species has the largest flower on the planet, smells like a dead body and takes something like ten years to flower. Orbeas are fascinating

Help me identify this plant, GT ID says it’s called earthbound star but I’m not satisfied that’s it’s name, I’m hoping someone knows, @emch you have these, what do you think 🤔
