I was so worried it was going to get bumped off. I think it's stunning and if you get really, really close to it definitely smells like something rotting.

@JanelleRose I've heard that some are quite unpleasant smelling but if you have to get really close to pick up the odor, it can't be that bad😊

@gjones different varieties have different scents. This one is very mild whilst others you can smell from some distance. Now I kinda want a smelly one haha

😁😂😁Do the flowers from the different varieties look the same as this one or are they all different?

@gjones All different and equally unique. If you Google stapelia flower you'll see some great examples.

I know the flowers are gorgeous! Do they really smell as bad as the name indicates?

@gjones this will be my first flower so I can't confirm yet. But I believe some are quite mild whilst others are not so nice. I'm really curious so see which I have.
