neat, it looks like a starfish!
Thats beautiful. I hope my dragonfruit flowers this year.
S. flavopurpurea definitely has noteworthy flowers and your plant has made a gorgeous flower with more of them to follow from the looks of it.
Because those are part of the Carrion Plant family of succulents and their flowers are supposed to smell like rotting flesh, just curious what fragrance these ones give off.
I have one in the basement that smells like a mouse that has gone bad, whenever it flowers...so i don't imagine that one will smell a whole lot better...but nature has surprises in store
I'd thought i'd read that this one had a different aroma as well, maybe a lemon-like scent, though it's been a while since i've read anything about this particular species.
But what i really remembered most about this species was it's remarkable flowers.
Thanks for sharing those pics with us, Mobile!
Awesome! I always get my nose right up over the corollas and snort that carrion flower stench just to see... I've always been disappointed. I keep hoping and praying for one that really just bowls me over!
