I actually didnt realize this plant was flowering. I could smell something rotten, like a dead animal, lifted the pot, and the flower was on the other side already ope. Not the sort of thing you usually miss. Drooling

There are nurseries supplying Stapeliads mail order, Randy. The majority of these plants come from dry, arid regions of Africa. Think Aloe Vera, and thats about the way most like to be grown. Keep them dry Cindy, water sparingly, warm days, cool nights...lots of light and fresh air. If it rots at the base, take cuttings, let dry for a couple of days, and then root them, often on their sides to avoid rot which could happen if inserted into medium. Easy for me outside, more of a challenge indoors

V true Carol if its in the ground, like here. The irrigated Aloe here is very plump and green and spread into huge clumps, whereas the non irrigated tend to look very different until the rains come, when it plumps up and flowers after the rains stop. I was thinking more Aloe grown in a pot. If it has wet feet all the time in a pot, it will tend to rot as the roots are restricted togetherand cant spread. Stapeliads in pots tend to like wide, low pots to spread , and to dry out inbetween waterings. I have a few in the ground...the rest will go in the ground when the house is finished, in about 100 years.:))
