    Stapelia for Trade

    I have a huge Stapelia that I can take some cuttings off of if anyone is interested. I was hoping for cuptrap VFt or big mouth VFT. The plant is big enough that I can take pieces off for about three trades of VFT that aren't typical ones. The pieces have knubbies on them that when you place them in the soil they root easily. USA only please, not sure about shipping laws, TIA

    I will try and post a picture, never have done that before. This plant blooms a big flower that looks like a starfish, and kinda smells like old meat (just the flower, doesn't smell when not blooming) It draws flies, that is how it is pollinates. I have this plant out in front of my porch, and it doesn't smell so much that you notice it often, although I did move it last year away from my swing. It had so many blooms it WAS stinky. I figured if anyone else besides me would want one of these, it would be the members of this group. What a way to feed your plants. Anyway, I'll go and take some pic's and see if I can upload them.

    I don't know very much about them, do they need to be dormant. I had been putting my VFT up in an attic window in the winter, and it did well.

    prolifera is a close relation to adelae.....constant conditions year round, doesnt like really bright light and a lil higher humidity......mine are growing in a open topped 10 gal fish tank under florescents and doing fine....
