The genus Stapelia consists of around 40 species stem succulent plants, predominantly from South Africa. The flowers of Stapelia gigantea can reach 41 cm in diameter. Most Stapelia flowers are visibly hairy and beautiful but generate the odour of rotten flesh which serves to attract specialist pollinators.

Stapelia make good container plants prefering part sun only. A free-draining mix is essential. Water infrequently.
