Acquired my Stapelia gigantea, health check?
So I went ahead and bought the Stapelia that I saw at IKEA the other day, too curious about its flower, not sure if it's gigantea but seems like most people had the same ID for it. I was surprised that it has a velvety feel on the stems
Does it look somewhat healthy?
It must have been in the showroom for a few days or weeks already, so I will probably leave it be for a little while before thinking about watering/repotting. Although I don't know what the heck kind of soil it is in right now......yuck. Is that coir? (don't think so)
The tiny buds, I wonder why it's on the youngest/smallest stem of the plant... hope it will flower for me!
