Orbea variegata

Succulent with very smelly flowers...more like somethings rotten!

Crikey Chloris......haven't seen one of these before....amazing flower...does it attract insects and eat them?

I once took one of these into the office where I worked . It stunk the place out but everyone wanted a cutting of it.

Don't grow this one in the house cos flies love it they are the pollinators, someones got to do it! But unfortunately it doesn't eat 'em....

As you say Bernieh, beautiful,and as Blodyn points out everyone is fascinated by them, despite the smell.

Chloris, Ask Jan about the ride home from the Lostwithiel farmers market & me with one of these on my lap?. At the time we didn't realize where the smell was coming from!!!
