I have been trying to grow this plant for the last year! Of the original 3 that i bought one flowered. It is the most amazing flower. But it smells so bad you only smell it once!!
Anyway the one plant i have kept in its original timy container and as its out in the open under my Bonsais it stays constantly wet which for a succulent should either rot it or kill it. The other 2 I have planted with riversand and soil out in the full sun with all the other cacti and they are all slowly dying. Getting soft and then almost collapsing.
Has anyone else grown these.??

Tried to put pictures up. Have just started using photobucket and was not uploading the new pics from my pc? Am using dial up???

Hi Bids, do you mean your plant is a Stapelia? Like this one?  -

Yes BBMacpie it looks alot like that although ive ever seen it so tall. Mine are a sort of pink midway to the top and green the rest of the plant. But yes it does look the same.
Please tell me u have the secret formula to growing these
