Showy Carrion flower or Star flower. Never seen this before, our very first Star flower from the garden. . . . #flower #starflower #carrionflower #cacti #beautiful #awesome #plantlover #tropicalliving
No, it's not a dead mouse just north of the lily ponds... it's just the appropriately named pink devil's tongue, Amorphophallus bulbifer flowering. Most potently stinky around midday, like most of the Amorphophallus genus, this species from northeast India imitates the smell and colour of rotting flesh to deceive flies into visiting, and thus get pollination services without actually providing any reward to the pollinators. This one is not actually as hideously smelly as some of the aroid family. When our black arum, Dracunculus vulgaris was flowering, the garden team actually double checked that there wasn't also a dead cat in the bushes nearby. #amorphophallus #carrionflower
You know all about these #Stapelia gigantea by now (succulent, not cactus; related to milkweed; stinky flowers attract flies for pollination; also called #carrionflower for the rotting meat smell I have yet to notice; etc.), but here's another fun fact, courtesy of the Missouri Botanical Garden's web site, which is a great source of plant info, including audio files with correct pronunciation: Genus name honors Dutch physician Johannes Bodaeus van Stapel (1602-1636). Specific epithet means unusually tall or large. Used here for the large flowers. #stapeliagigantea #stapeliad #dbgflowers #azflowers #desertbotanicalgarden #desertgardening #desertgarden #gardeninspiration #sunsetmag #phgmag #succulove #myphx #igersphx #instagramaz #arizonahighways #visitarizona #az365 #azculture #publicgardens #withGalaxy #GalaxyS9Plus
Carrion flower. These little guys attract flies to pollinate instead of bees! #botanicalgardens #phoenix #phoenixbotanicalgarden #carrionflower #carrioncactus #phoenixaz
I finally got to meet a BLOOMING Stapelia gigantea! Also know as a clarion plant, they really do smell (and attracts flies for pollination). I've been curious about this plant for a long time, and it was special to finally see one bloom. Native to South Africa and Tanzania, beautiful and bizarre. 🌸 . . . . . #plantlady #plants #horticulture #botanic #botanicalgardens #stapelia #carrionflower #smellyflower #nature #beautifulbizzarre #hairyflower #cactus
It’s funny how your memory works when you don’t get much sleep. • I had gifted a baby from this #stapelia to couple of friends lately and had woven a lovely tale about how the flower opens up all pink and fluffy like a Hollywood starlet. It sounded so wholesome... • I found the seed pod opening today which I think is pretty interesting and thought I’d check out last years post when it was in flower so I could show that pic alongside. • Ummmm ... so here’s what I said about it last year “My Stapelia is flowering. It has a swollen bud about the size of a testicle that bursts open into a hairy star the colour of blood that smells like rotten flesh to attract specialist pollinators like blowflies hence its common name - carrion flower. Such a delightful plant 🖤” • ... oops 😬 . . . #stapeliagigantea #carrionflower #carrionflowersofinstagram #succulents #strangethings #strangeplants #plantcollector #whatshangingwednesday #hanginggarden
Lembram dele? Olha como desenvolveu de uma semana pra cá ... Já já dará aquela flor linda e. Formato de 🌟... Por isso ele é conhecido como cacto estrela... Porém o nome científico é stapelia... 💐🏜️☀️🌞 Mostrarei aqui o resultado... #stapelia #succulents #succulent #flowers #cactus #flower #suculentas #asclepiadaceae #stapeliaflower #succulove #plants #succulentlove #stapeliads #stapeliad #apocynaceae #stapeliagrandiflora #nature #flores #huernia #stapelianthus #garden #stapeliagigantea #cacti #stapelianthusdecaryi #stapeliavariegata #stapeliaflowers #carrionflower #succulentgarden #stapeliahirsuta #suculenta
anyone able to help me out with an ID on this gloriously malodorous boy? EDIT - orbea pulchella?? #plantID #apocynaceae #stapelia #orbea #huernia #carrionflower #vetplante #succulents #succulove #weirdplants
Today's treasure hanging out of the confines of the pot and looking good in the dappled light onder my doringboom. #carrionflower #orbeavariegata
My tiny precious Huernia zebrina opened its first flower today and also a noid Orbea I’ve had for 3 years is finally bulging up its first ever flower bud.❤️ A summer spent out on the balcony in the scorching heat did wonders. #asclepias #huernia #stapelia #carrionflower #joulutähti
Peekaboo, I see you. My stapelia is flowering (hope I have the name right). #succulents #stapelia #stapeliagigantea #myvetplantverslawing #aasblom #carrionflower #doesnotsmellgood #southafrica
The king of Bulbophyllum. It's so weird because i hardly smelled the rotting meat scent, but oh well, it's so stinky either #Bulbophyllum #Phalaenopsis #BulbophyllumPhalaenopsis #バルボフィラム #ファレノプシス #バルボフィラムファレノプシス #Orchid #蘭 #洋蘭 #CarrionFlower
Found this little guy (Carrion Flower) @ the #desertbotanicalgarden #dbgphx #carrionflower
Apteranthes burchardii subsp. maura. This subspecies is endemic to Morocco, the other (subsp. burchardii) being endemic to the Canary Islands.

There she is in all her glory - Stapelia Gigantea aka Carrion Flower. This flower is stinky and pollinated by flies the true rebel of my collection. Note there are 3 different stapelias in this pot. The fatter branches are those of the gigantea 🤗 #stapeliagigantea #carrionflower #succulentsofinstagram #plantlady #houseplantclub #urbanjungle #plantgang #plantlife #plantsmakemehappy #botanicalpickmeup #talkplantytome #growit #greenspace #coolplantkids #urbanjungling #plantgoal #urbanjunglebloggers #planttherapy #lifearoundplants #theplantedgram #plantparentcommunity #houseplantplantclub #theplantagenda
Haven’t posted in a while so very busy, moving all my plants safely 1.5 hours away... noticed my first stinky flower!!!! Possibly a carrion flower, but only time will tell 💕💚 #carrionflower #stinkyplant #stapeliads
My stapelia, Erin #carrionflower #stapelia
Looking for an ID on this one. The closest I could find are stapelia olivacea (except this is not hairy) and stapelia similica (except the flowers are not on stalks). Edit: I found it in one of my books at last! Stapelia kwebensis #stapelia #asclepiad #carrionflower #succulove #potplant #firstflower
Huernia hystrix — looking tough! 😍 #asclepiadaceae #porcupine #carrionflower
I have no idea what kind of plant this is, but this fly was very interested in getting to the bottom of it.
Time for another #stapeliad , this is Apteranthes joannis from Morocco. A very lovely stapeliad, with an extremely restricted distribution, endemic to a small area in south west Morocco. . stapelia #stapeliae #caralluma #apteranthes #asclepiad #apocynaceae #carrionflower #succulent #succulove #succulentsofinstagram #alamedagardens #botanicalgardens
I love the hairy deep red flowers of my #stapellahirsuta 🙌 but so it seems does all local #blowflies 🙄 I guess it's not called a #carrionflower for nothing 😉 #perth #perthplants #succulents #aussieplantclub #urbanjungleblog #outdoorplants #plantsofinstagram #plantobsession #plantsmakepeoplehappy & flies it seems? 😏💚🙌
Bangun-bangun dan mendapati si tampan lagi berbunga bunga. Cakep sih tapi baunya 😬😬😬😬 #stapelia #carrionflower
Fifth in our #stapeliad series is Caralluma munbyana, an iberoafrican species native to northwest Africa and southeast Spain. #stapelia #asclepiad #apocynaceae #caralluma #apteranthes #succulent #succulove #succulentsofinstagram #alamedagardens #botanicalgardens #propagation #carrionflower

I've waited weeks for this
Mum has this carion plant in flower and she used me as a guinea pug to smell it! I was unimpressed 🤨with the flower and smell but very interested in all the flies buzzing around 🦟#staffordshirebullterrier #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsofinstagram #staffy #rescuedog #carrionflower
First came the dust, then the thunderstorm and a day of rain, and then out popped a starfish in my garden! Love watching these guys bloom. Not a cactus, this plant is a succulent and although it is a #carrionflower I have never smelled anything unpleasant. A special thank you to my newest followers @amzy_willums @artbusiness01 @ckbansal23 @danielakuryjoias @hsk_noda @joannecunningham1279 @sailing_gram__ I appreciate it! #starfishplant #starfish #stapelia #succulents #lovenature #lovenature 💚 #homeiswheretheheartis #thisisaustralia
This Starfish Flower Cactus also more morbidly called the “carrion flower” (Stapelia grandiflora, which are not actually cactus but part of the succulent family) in our backyard has changed colors from green to red ahead of the holidays. It’s the same one that has very exotic and unusual flowers which give off a scent that reminds me of the corpse flower. Apparently it shares similar traits of plants from (but are not actually part of) the carnivorous family in that they possess insect attracting flora (for pollination vs. consumption)—but peeyyew. No flowers now, but it sure is a pretty and unusual plant year around. #stapeliagrandiflora #starfishcactus #ornamentalplants #succulents #plantsofinstagram #succulentsofinstagram #carrionflower
The lower sun of a Manitoba winter sets leaves aglow. Here, carrionflower leaf and tendril. #manitobawinter #manitobaflora #carrionflower #lighthroughleaves
Fourth in our #stapeliad series is Apteranthes europaea subsp. europaea, native to the Mediterranean coast of North Africa, SE Spain and Lampedusa (Italy). This particular specimen was collected from a botanical trip to Morocco. In mainland Europe it can be found growing in the dry, desert areas of southern Spain, in the Provinces of Almeria and Murcia. It was originally described from the small island of Lampedusa (part of Italy) in the Mediterranean Sea. #stapelia #asclepiad #apocynaceae #caralluma #succulent #succulove #succulentsofinstagram #alamedagardens #botanicalgardens #propagation #carrionflower #morocco
Surprise carrion flower alert! Came into the lab today to find this weirdo (grown by my grad student, @aperium ) being fabulous. Smells exactly like you’d think a carrion flower would, though it’s hard to be sure, since I do have a dissection room in the lab... #stapelia #carrionplant #carrionflower #labplants #indoorjungle #houseplants #houseplantsofinstagram #houseplantcommunity #houseplantclub #houseplantjournal #crazyplantpeople #plantenabler #plantnerd #plantgeek #plantaddict #plantlife #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsmakemehappy #plantsplantsplants

Carrion flower. The early shoots taste similar to asparagus and the roots can be ground into flour. I guarantee Sawyer is going to experiment with hickory flour and other flours like this for pancakes at the new house :) #carrionflower #pancakes #edibleplants #forestfood #berries
Yay she blooms again!!!!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
