The scientific name for the Starfish Plant is Stapelia Orbea variegata. It comes from South Africa and is also known as the carrion plant due to the stinky smell of the flowers. Mine has been flowering for six months now, starting at Christmas time. It has had many, perfect starfish flowers but also one very strange, yet to be revealed bud. The bud started quite small but developed a second pod that has continued to grow. I wonder what will happen when it opens? Stay tuned for an update.
