Caralluma foetida Family: Apocynaceae (Asclepidaceae). An attractive Stapeliad with square stems. Flowers are purple and yellow mottled with purple fringe. Flowers are most common and numerous in the late summer and fall but can bloom any time of year if happy. They can take some direct sun, but aren't full sun plants. This is one of the carrion flower type Stapeliads so you probably want it outside when in flower. Takes normal succulent care. Protect from frost. Keep very dry in the winter unless you have good growing conditions. Stapeliads can be quite rot prone if kept too moist especially in the winter.
You will receive the plant shown in the last image or similar. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
