The Stapelia gigantea is a unique and strange succulent, with thick fleshy stems that are bordered by little bumps. This spineless, velvety plant can grow between 10cm and 30cm tall, and can produce large yellow and red flowers which mimic the appearance and smell of dead meat. This adaptation is used to attract flies which act as pollinators for this plant.
Like most succulents, the Stapelia gigantea grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant prefers either full sun or partial shade, where it can get all the benefits of bright light without being scorched.
