Stapelia schinzii Family: Apocynaceae (Asclepidaceae). An attractive Stapeliad with wrinkly brown flowers 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. The flowers have a fairly strong scent so you probably want to move this plant outside when it flowers.
Give lots of light, but protect from hot afternoon sun in summer. During the growing season they can be watered as much as any other succulent (i.e. regularly but don't let the soil stay wet). Keep drier in the winter. Cool and wet or low light and wet are what rot this and all other Stapeliads.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one 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.
