One of our favorite weirdos, Stapelia hirsuita ("hairy") is highly sought after for its unusual shape and even stranger flowers- starting as bizarre, lantern-like buds, they burst open like a lewd starfish and emit a distinct odor of carrion. 

Stapelia are not cacti, and while they can tolerate some temporary direct sun, they prefer plenty of bright, indirect light. Allow the soil to dry out completely between wateringsand discontinue watering during the winter.
