Pseudolithos cubiformis Family: Apocynaceae One of the rarest and most unusual Stapeliads! The plant lives up to its name which means "Cube shaped false rock". The cube shaped part isn't evident when young but as it matures it takes on a distinct square shape. Flowers are hairy beige-pink and have the distinct carrion smell Stapeliads are famous for.
Pseudolithos are infamously touchy plants and you should only get one if you are an experienced succulent grower. They need very well drained soil and should be watered sparingly. During the warmer months water when the soil dries out. During cooler months water minimally if at all. Overwatering can turn these plants to mush surprisingly fast. Needs good light. In low light the plant is green, in high light it turns beige to brown.
You will receive the plant shown in the 5th image. Plants shown in a 2" pot. Please note these are very small plants. Look at dime in image for scale. Last image shows a mature plant in flower.
