Psithurism and chirping birds.
Dess natural but dess nasty! Lol
Crispy, dried up starfish flowers smell like spoiled fish sticks.
The petals have fallen off now I think a seedpod is forming? I did attempt to pollinate the flowers with one another.
End of the saga!
The second bloom is more perfect! Such a star! And yes, they do smell similar to dead fish in an aquarium at this time! It seems they produce different smells throughout the day! 🤢🤢🤢😁
This morning it actually smells good! Very very mild scent though!
Wonderful pic #starfishflower ❤️
This made my day!
It's so perfect!
The smell is very pungent. I would describe it as a "pleasant stink" somewhere along the lines of extra sharp cheddar, balsamic vinaigrette, garlic, sauerkraut etc. Not a repulsive rotting flesh smell like it's often descibed, in my opinion!
The boo-boo bloom is now getting too big and heavy to hold itself up!
Its like a ol stankin balloon! Lol
Perfect caption. This just made me laugh out loud! ❤️
Maybe the stapelia will flower this year after all!
These stumps were left after taking cuttings but now they are regrowing. Who knew?
Lmao! In the back of my mind I knew, that's why i didn't compost it lol. Stapelia are almost impossible to lose because they propagate so readily! I love them lol
No, I had to bring them in during hurricane Florence and all the buds withered away. Though back outdoors now, It's getting cooler so I doubt they'll bloom this year unfortunately.
All the stapelia have tons of flower buds!!!
Ooh I forgot about that lol. I was keeping one indoors to see how it would fare. Maybe I'll keep that one dead-headed and just grow it for the greens! 😬😬😬
Cuttings doing good
