Hirsuit little stinker

"Give me a Stapelia with hair, long beautiful hair

Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen"

I got this one as a noid; it's most likely a hybrid with hirsuta in it (x gigantea? Something else-- who knows?) For a plant that is only medium-small sized, it has put out a lot of flowers this year!

Note this is the indoor version-- no fly eggs.

"Give me down to there hair, shoulder
length or longer... Here baby, there, momma, ev'rywhere, daddy, daddy, hair, ..."
Are we dated now or what? :D

Jen,
I think that one could be Stapelia grandiflora.

You're probably right on that-- I hesitate to tag these thigs because they can be so darned variable.

Heeheee-- the only folks who have us dated from that, are as old as we are ;)

Hee hee, Jen, you're right! That's good!

Nice one, WS!

Hope you don't mind me adding my Stapelia hirsuta:

Ooojen and Rozemarie I never thought I'd read those lyrics here.

LOL.

Deefar, HereÂs a hand-held shot for size, stark morning sun. BTW Ooojen, IÂve heard that many of the OTC Stapeliads are hybrids of unknown origin. That would be a good question for the people in the Stapeliad groups, they would know. I just stick with the name that came with the plant or, like most of mine, I tag them Stapelia 01, 02 etc.

Hee hee, well neither did I, MrBrownThumb!

Dawn, The size on my flower is about 3 inches across (maybe a tad more).

All of those are beautiful flowers! I have one bud on mine, but I hesitate to take its picture, lest it fall off and shrivel up. I haven't had good luck with it flowering the last few years. By the way...I am still hearing the song in my head!! he he he.
