Carrion Plant, Starfish Flower, Starfish Cactus (Stapelia grandiflora)

Okay, awesome. I have several stapelias two years old and no durn blooms yet? Any suggestions to help them bloom appreciated. Marilynne in swampland, Fl. Alias Corky

Mine took several years before they bloomed. I do give them a shot of miracle grow about every couple months. Full shade for my stapelias, BTW.

Beautiful! I inherited a stapelia from a work colleague. It was very neglected (it had been in her garage for two weeks while she was on vacation).

I ended up taking cuttings which are now settling in fine. I hope to see some blooms eventually.

That's a lovely photo Dave!

Thanks. :-)

Did you see the closeup. Gag.

I am waiting for mine to bloom.
