I bought this Stapelia scitula last fall. It was outside covered during our very cold (20's at night for 5 days) weather. I had other Stapeliads near it and they are all fine. I wondered if it got too cold and that is why it looks as it does. What do you think?

I would say yes...cold damage. It looks sort of dessicated...but from all i have read, it is recommended for zone 10 and higher outdoors. It may revive some, I would wait and see what it does.

Thank you. I have moved it inside under my lights where I can pamper it. We'll see what happens.
