    There are still six stapelia gigantea flower buds. Do hope they all open successfully. There are also three smaller buds hiding behind one of the thick stems. Have just discovered them. Some yet to develop buds are also still in situ.



    Looking at them front on. They look like wontons.

    The stapelia gigantea flowers are growing so rapidly. The largest is nearly 15cms (6ins) long which is close to the size they get before opening. The two at the bottom are smaller so hopefully they will open later. There will hardly be room for these four.



    One of the two at the bottom is larger than the other. This going to be a quite a sight if they all open at once.

    Two other angles. Stapelia gigantea flowers look like starfish.

    Repotted the stapelia "Gigantea" a few months ago giving it a pot where it could 'roam' but it still hangs over the edge nearly to the ground. Don't know how it fitted into its much smaller round pot. 


    This is its new growth which is a good sign. Was getting a bit worried as it looked to be dying & the old growth was all squishy. Flowers only come from new growth stems.

    More new growth on the trailing part of the stapelia "Gigantea". It has been flowering profusely here & there is a flower stem growing from the bottom branch.
