Today’s Flowers-Stapelia Grandiflora

Starfish Cactus
Stapelia grandiflora is also known as Carrion Plant, Starfish Flower, Starfish Cactus. Clump-forming succulent with velvety, upright stems.
This cactus is awesome, I have a few of them growing inside at my north facing window, they do great, flowering often. I love the lightly furry blooms. It better need a few hours of sunlight, and be sure to let them dry out real good before watering again. It is very easy to maintain and propagate by cuttings or sections pulled away.
