RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Here is some of mine. It was purchased as Stapelia 'Carrion Plant'. It showed a picture the same as yours. It never bloomed so I can't be sure. I saw a picture of Stapelia Grandiflora Variagata that looked Identical. Have to look up S. Orbea. Also the stems are a much lighter color than my others and some almsot white.

What to feed stapeliad? Can't wait to get mine grow bigger and bloom.

I bought 8 different species from CSSS, they are getting smaller and look unhappy. Only Gigantea grows plenty stems and happy.

Thx.

My Huernia bloomed again after bring it in. This time I got a nice close up. I purchased it as Owe's Eye but it's not. So for now it's NoID.

RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Kathi,
I would be glad to send stems come spring, for postage.
Email me any, all for request, I will put on list.

RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Stush, your dark red blooming plant may be a form of Huernia schneideriana.

The one named Orbea variegata used to be called Stapelia variegata. Stapelia grandiflora is a different plant (& would not have "variegata" tacked on the end). Carrion plant is the common name used for many stapeliads -many genus- so isn't a help in determining ID on these.

PIO, I'm interested in seeing your red blooms as well.

RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Thanks, Rosemarie but I think I'm going to miss them. Leaving in the morning until Monday. I hardly ever go anywhere, can't believe that. DH can keep an eye on it if I remember to ask him... Pics of the last time it bloomed are in here though.

Don't know about inside, but it wasn't at all noticeable outside - the smell I mean - from one flower of this type being open at a time on such a small plant. If I put my nose near it to sniff purposely, definitely not pleasant but not as strong as Gynura.

RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Wrong expectations about when this would open, which is today! (Trip was cancelled anyway.) No, there's no scent, at this hour.


 o
RE: Here they are,my Stapelias

Very pretty!

Very cute Orbea. I'm waiting while Howard masters his methods on the Stapelia family. Then I'll go shopping at "Chateau Bikerdoc's". heh
