Tiny stapeliad flower

I got this plant at the arboretum this past spring. This week, it flowered for the first time.





It has the classic stapeliad star-shape. And it's really small.



Here it is next to my other stapelia, which was nice enough to give me a flower to compare the size. I made a slideshow of that plant last year.

  1. Very interesting flower. (I'd not heard of a job like yours before.)

Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
