Stapelia gigantea

  • Rare and unusual succulent with enormous (8-10") bizarre flowers that resemble starfish.
  • Blooms are a flesh colour, with dark patterning, and have a faint smell of carrion.
  • Short, velvety, cactus-like stems.


  • Light: Bright with as much direct sun as possible (west or south window).
  • Water: Water deeply once the soil has completely dried out in spring and summer. Water lightly only if the stems begin to shrivel in winter.
  • Fertilizer: Use an all-purpose fertilizer such as Schultz Indoor Plant Food (10-15-10) up to twice monthly in spring and summer.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use sharply-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Cactus & Succulent Mix with extra perlite and small Orchiata added. This plant rots very easily when overwatered.
