Gardening is like cooking. To improve, you need to be willing to make mistakes and experiment. Also, common names are garbage. Zone 9b, West Sac, CA.

Demogorgon. The blooms of the #carrionplant--a succulent native to the desert regions of South Africa to Tanzania (thanks, Wikipedia)--are notoriously foul-smelling, effectively attracting pollinating flies. (None in this pic 'cause they preferred my scent.) #StapeliaGigantea #starfishflower

No flowers yet, but it's doing much better in a glazed pot.
