Stapelia Gigantea has definitely the biggest flowers if all the succulents (and cacti) I own. Of all the flowers now that I think of it. The size of one flower is probably about 13 cm across if not more.
They are also the hairiest and the stinkiest of them all! That is quite a lot most and best for one plant.
I often try to shoot the buds of my new plants and then flowers when they open. In this case the buds look just so much better! The slip shape, some veins. As showy, and amazing looking the flowers are not the most photogenic. Or I didn't find the way to shoot them to make them look nice.
So many hair!To remind you, those flower smell like rotten flesh. Add that too the hairy look, wild pattern and dark brown-red colour of the flowers... yea.. quite wild.
