I figured I could ask and maybe someone here would know. I have a new plant labelled Stapelid nobilis. After checking somethings out online I have heard contradictory reports on the stankyness of the flowering plants. Some people have nobilis with little to no smell when flowering but wikipedia says that Stapelia nobilis also goes by the name Stapelia gigantea which I thought was supposed to be rather ranky.
So my question...What gives? Is nobilis actually a distinct, less smelly species compared to gigantea or are they all the same and the level of rank (or not) just depends on individual variables such as plant genetics, environment, etc.
I really would like mine to reek if it ever flowers so I figured I should check into this now instead of expecting some powerful stench and then...pffh nothing if it eventually does flower and end up being rather disappointed.
If anybody here is a stapelid wiz lemme know what you think, I would really appreciate it.
