Kari, I got this a little over a year ago, but it was not a baby. Once they acclimate, they usually bloom. My first few years for my first Stapelia it did nothing. Patience, my friend. 🤗💕

Katy, I think of these as small, because I compare their 5 1/2" spread to the 12" of the Stapelia gigantea. 😂 Perspective I guess. 😎 📏 @gjones
