Birileri bohçasını toplayıp gelmiş ve bugün yarın açar 🎈 Tek yapmanız gereken çiçeklendiği dönem bitkinin toprağını uzun süre kuru bırakmayın ki tomurcuklar büyümeden kuruyup dökülmesin 🍀 #suculent #suculents #suculentas #sukulentistanbul #succulentturkey #succulent #leşkaktüsü #succulovers #carrion #carrionflower #carrionplant #stapelia #stapeliaorbea #orbeaveriegata
This is one SPOOKY flower!! The Carrion Flower is a succulent plant native to tropical areas of southern Africa. These flowers are somewhat hairy and emit an odor of rotten flesh. 💀 It does this in order to attract flies for pollination. Come see + smell it in our Visitors' Center!
Amorphophallus titanum, also known as the titan arum, is a flowering plant with the largest unbranched inflorescence in the world. Due to its odor, which is like the smell of a rotting corpse or carcass, the titan arum is characterized as a carrion flower. . Pict cr : kompas.com
Stapelia gigantea. This clump-forming succulent grows upright, rigid stems that produce unbelievably large blooms up to 35 cm (14”). The pale yellow flowers with its transverse crimson lines seem rather beguiling, however, it supposedly emits the stench of rotting flesh to attract flies for pollination. Mine, on the other hand, has yet to smell like a dead body🙃🤞🏼 • • • #stapelia #stapeliagigantea #zulugiant #starfishplant #starfishflower #starfish #carrionplant #carrionflower #clump #rigid #unbelievable #hugeflower #paleyellow #yellow #crimson #beguiling #stinky #flypollinated #succulent #succulents #cactus #cacti #plant #plants #pflanze #pflanzen #planta #plantas
Open sesame! Stapelia gigantea putting on a show :) Just don’t stick your nose in it, the flower makes a scent much like rotting meat in order to attract flies to pollinate it! .....

Coincidentally after I posted my variegated Stapelia earlier I went to the other side of my yard and noticed some huge related blooms. These are some shots of a six inch Star flower from one of my non-variegated Stapelia Gigantea patches to the side of my garden. The scent on these are unique and while I definitely can understand how it's classified as a carrion flower this specific bloom had more of a sweet skunk odor, rather than the usual rot or decay. #cactus #cacti #kakteen #cactigarden #gardening #desertgardening #landscaping #succulentsofinstagram #succulent #plantsofinstagram #plants #starflower #starfishcactus #starflowercactus #flowerlovers #flowergram #floweringcactus #carrionflower #weirdplants #rareplants #fleur #fleurrouge #desertblooms #redflowers #flowerbuds #stapelia #stapeliagigantea #stapeliabloom

Hold your nose around the Titan arum, unless you like the smell of rotting corpses. This carrion flower features an inflorescence which can grow to over 10ft in height (impressive, right?). The exotic green and dark pink spathe is also kind of pretty in comparison... #Titanarum #CarrionFlower #Weirdandwacky #Weirdandwackyplants #Plantlife #PlantGeek #Plantsofinstagram #Plantsofinsta #Plantstagram #Plantlove #Plantslover #plantsinfocus
🇪🇸 Orbea variegata. Esta extraña pero popular planta a menudo se vende bajo su nombre anterior Stapelia variegata. Tiene muchos nombres comunes, como planta estrella de mar, cactus estrella de mar, cactus de la carroña, flor de la carroña, el cactus del sapo, la planta del sapo. No está estrechamente relacionada con la verdadera familia de los cactus. Cuando se cultiva como planta ornamental en zonas templadas, requiere protección, ya que no tolera las heladas. 🇬🇧 Orbea variegata. This rare but popular plant is often sold under its former name Stapelia variegata. It has many common names, including starfish plant, starfish cactus, carrion cactus, carrion flower, toad cactus, toad plant. It is not closely related to the true cactus family. When grown as an ornamental plant in temperate zones it requires protection, as it does not tolerate freezing temperatures. . . . #floweroftheday #succulentlove #succulentgarden #succulentaddicted #succulentworld #succulent #starfishplant #starfishcactus #starfishflower #carrionflower #carrioncactus #toadplant #stapelia #garden #gardeners #gardenphotography #gardeninglife #jardines #rareplants #rareflowers #flower_special_ #flowerlover #flowerperfection #floral #succulentsaturday #succuholic #raresucculents #succulentsonly #succulentflower #ilovesucculents
Finally! After almost 3 years of searching, this beautiful Orbea variegata became part of my collection today 😍. By the way, even though it's tiny, the flower stinks as much as my larger Stapelia gigantea 😳🤭. #orbeavariegata #carrionflower #StarfishFlower #stapeliad #macro #succulents #SucculentHouse #succulove #succulentaddict #succulentsofinstagram #succulentobsession #DesertGardening #SonoranDesert #GalaxyS8
There she is... my Stapelia gigantea in full bloom. Stapelias are also referred to as Zulu Giants and are used by the Zulu people as a remedy for hysteria. #stapeliagigantea #apocynaceae #zulugiant #carrionflower #toadplant #stinckyflower #stapelia #starfishflowers #smellyplants #succulents #botanylovers #greenthumbsucculents #positano #amalficoast #autumn 🍁
So the taproom has this flower blooming and it's pretty rad. #carrionflower #wacoisawonderland #brotherwellbrewing #succulentflower #flowersinabrewery
This Mantis arrived on our balcony about a month ago. She quickly found the Stapelia Gigantea. Here she is waiting for another bottle fly, that can not resist these carrion flowers. #prayingmantis #stapeliagigantea #balconygardens #carrionflower

Swooped up about a half dozen various types of Stapliead/Huernia plants the other week at the Austin Cacti & Succulent show. I’ll post more pics as they flower. Also, not totally certain on the taxonomy of these so If anyone can ID some of these let me know! #stapeliads #stapelia #carrionflower #huernia #succulents #planthoarder
Came home to all the nature today!! First, all three of my #monarchs hatched and then I saw my #carrionflower opened!!! Then, when I was cutting flowers for a midnight snack for them (I’ll release the butterflies tomorrow during the daylight) this little buddy came in on accident.
Y’all don’t know how long I’ve been wanting these two🙈😵❤️ #huernia #carrionflower #stapeliagigantea #stapelia #succulents #blooms #stinkyflowers
My stapelia picked the gloomiest day to bloom and smells like rotting death. Proudest mom EVER 🖤💀 #carrionflower #stapeliagigantea
Playing with my microscope today. “Carrion Flower Root” #carrionflower #micronature #microphotography #natureart #microscope #microflower #stockphoto
Huernia pillansii, in habitat near Calizdorp. Not very glamorous in the field, but it can be a real beauty in cultivation. #huernia #huerniapillansii #asclepiads #stapeliads #aasblom #carrionflower #calitzdorp #africansucculents
After weeks of waiting for that bud to open, it's finally blooming today! I didn't even know what this plant was until now and expected a typical cactus flower. Surprised! It's a stapelia. Smells like death haha 😂🤘🤮🤘#succulent #carrionflower

11 blooms today! It has been steadily blooming, and still more buds! #cactus #cacti #gardening #garden #succulents #desertliving #plants #tucson #flowers #carrionflower This plant is so happy!
Stapelia gigantea, finally bloomed! This succulent, a member of the milkweed family, is often referred to as the carrion flower because these huge flowers sink like rotting meat. This attracts flies who do the pollinating. . . . . . #bizzareplants #houseplants #milkweed #Stapeliagigantea #stapelia #floweringsucculent #succulents #exoticplants #carrionflower #hobbiessavelives #helgahobbyseed #southjersey #flies #pollinators #plantsofinstagram #urbanjungle #cacticacti #lifeinthedreamhouse #rottingmeatflower #nofilter #intimeforhalloween #grossflowers #grossnature #stink

Giant Starfish Flower from my yard. ✨🌵⭐️🌸 💞 They originated in the semi-arid tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and India. This particular one – the Stapelia gigantean – comes from northwestern South Africa. I rescued this plant from the top of garbage can and had no idea it flowered so beautifully. It was limp and pitted. I wasn’t sure it was going to survive but it was so peculiar looking. Not gonna lie! It was over a year ago. First time seeing it flower. #CarrionFlower #Carrion Plant #CarrionLily #ToadCactus #ZuluGiant #HairyGiantStarfishFlower #starfishflower #cactus #succulents #garden #yard #plantrescue #green #southafrican #cactusflower #beauty #nofilter #sandiego
We’ve had this plant since we bought the house, about 5 years & this is the first time its bloomed. #secretlifeofplants #succulentbloom #carrionflower #stapelia
The smell of my carrion flower in bloom has attracted swarms of flies to pollinate it, much to the delight of my carnivorous sundew which has grown fat and sassy off of them. . . . #artist #artistofinstagram #flowers #flowersofinstagram #plant #plants #plantsofinstagram #carnivorousplant #carnivorousplants #gardening #garden #gardens #bugs #bug #carrionflower #drosera
Corpse flower bloom in the spirit of the season. #carrion #carrionflower #stapelia #corpseflower #stinkingbeauty #flowers #plants
Happy Fall ya All! My African Starfish Flower is Blooming again! Have a great weekend! ❤️
One of our carrion flowers opened up and a burst of these faery like seeds popped out. Last year when our carrion flower bloomed, it was stinky and a lot of flies were very happy to pollinate it. This year, pollination by wind seems to be the chosen option. Isn’t nature incredible? 🌱 #succulents #waterwise #carrionflower #nursery #spring #pretoria
My professor calls these sci-fi flowers 😝 #carrionflower #blooms
Warning: swipe left outside mealtimes🤢. A few years ago a kind neighbour gave me a chunk of Stapelia grandiflora, which I merrily propagated. It is a lovely plant and produces gorgeous red star-shaped hairy blooms...only when you get closer, it has a light smell of rotten meat 😘...this attracts friendly flies which, in return for their good pollinating services, lay their eggs in the corona of the flower...you can even see the eggs hatching to beautiful wriggly worms🤗 ( 12:10 on picture 4 )...the other names of this plant are carrion plant or starfish flower...don’t let this put you off-it really is a beauty💃🏽😂❤️ #carrionflower #stapeliagrandiflora #stapelia #flypollination #nature #natureisamazing #mygarden #pottedplants #mygardentoday #pottedplantsofinstagram #succulents #beautyindecay #flies #plantsofinstagram #botany #botanical #botanica #flowers #flowersofinstagram #flowerpower #flowercloseup #flowerphotography
This #stapelia bloom opened yesterday and my hubby moved it to a different spot for me to take pix of it. The flies and the ants were attracted to it right away, the fragrance wasn’t appetizing to me at all. It’s still gorgeous though! 🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️🙅🏻‍♀️😂❤️🌵#stapeliagigantea #carrionflower #starfishflower #starfishcactus #cuttingfromafriend #stinky #cantstopwontstop #succulove #succulentaddict #succulenthoarder #nofilter
The other day I was in the cacti and succulents room and something smelled a bit off. Luckily I knew what to look for, and though the smell was more like a dead rodent, the flower in the image is what I was looking for. Stapelia gigantea, sometimes called carrion flower, definitely carries that smell as it attracts flies that accidentally pick up and drop off pollen as they deposit eggs or larvae where it seems there will be a food source. The balloon like buds (one in front and a larger one behind the flower here) will be opening this next week. Come and see, but don’t lean in and sniff deeply - those fragrance molecules will stay in your nose for a while if you do.
