@lovestogarden is it really a stinky beauty? The flower dried out and didn't get a chance to smell it. Lol

Yes! It smells a bit nasty and there are usually a minimum of three flies on them, well, until I try to take a 📷. 😂 Pull it open and smell. It might have kept some. 😨 Flies are it's pollinator. ❤

@jessah11 @greenroomgarden here's an example of a stapelia -- see the regular structure of the green cactus part? (I'll find you a huernia example in a moment)

@sushiwaitress Thanks for the comparison! Okay, this guy I know; a tiny one’s growing on my windowsill. Very slowly. That’s a gorgeous example, @echavez!
