Stapelia Gigantea Starfish

Rare Stapelia Gigantea Starfish

Stapelia gigantea are a short but wondering succulent in the Apocynaceae family native to the desert regions of South Africa and Tanzania. They are a rare spineless fuzzy textured succulent and are best known for their stinky smelling large, star-shaped flowers. 

Succulents are a group of plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. While they do need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought. 

Care and Maintenance

Direct sunlight is ideal or keep it in a very bright spot, and water only once the soil is fully dry. This is a fairly drought tolerant variety but it does need watering to stay healthy and keep growing.
