    You know they really don't smell all that bad
    Unless you stick your nose to it & smell one & they're still not that bad {Kind Of a Bummer}
    My VooDoo Lilies smell worst / LOL

    Fantastic! I had a number of these species but the mealies destroyed my Stapelia & Ceropegia collection.

    I finally got to stuff my face into a S. gigantea bloom last time I was at the orchid shop and I was disappointed about the lack of smell. You always hear people say "oh they smell real bad" but so far every "carrion/corpse flower" I've smelled of any plant family has merely smelled to me just like a new rubber halloween mask - kind of a faint ammonia or vinegar smell. I clean with vinegar and water in a spray bottle so I've smelled stronger scents when I clean the kitchen! lol

    I'd like to try sniffing the A. titanum just to see if that's really anything different than any of these more common other "stinkers".

    I know it sounds like a dumb thing to say
    But yeah I get disappointed when me "Stinky" plants don't stink bad enough / LOL

    I had a hell of a time with mealy bugs this year for the first time
    They kept attacking my Huernia
    Was having to spray them every few days

    Nice Stapelia. I have a Stapelia flavopurpurea but have never got it to flower. Supposed to smell nice though.
