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.

If your #Stapelia isn't flowering by October, better luck next year.

@misternatureboy -- I am morally certain this guy is a Stapelia paniculata scitula. I have one just like it...

@we432@msn.com I can highly recommend them. The flowers are all different sizes and they are super easy to grow...And if you like fragrant flowers, well, um, many of these are very fragrant LOL.

Quite a lot of growth from this #StapeliaScitula. #CrassulaPangolin, on the other hand, has seemingly been in a state of suspended animation since I got it. #succulent #succulentarrangement #SmallStarfishFlower #AdromischusCristatus #CrassulaMorgansBeauty 14June2019

I read the Pangolin is a very slow grower. 🌞

I read they were hard to grow and rot easily so I’ll have to try my best. 😬🌞 @misternatureboy
