    I guess eye 'candy' is in the eye or in this case the nose, of the beholder/smeller. Open for one day and stinks too! Great pictures, but I'll take a fragrant floof anyday.

    LOL! I just searched on Stapelia gigantea, and the flower was described:

    "The flowers smell like carrion and are not offensive if blooming outside."

    So I guess carrion smells ok if it's outside, but not if it's inside.

    Ewwww....what a cool plant! Kinda hard to have guests for dinner while it's blooming........... Hey, maybe that's the point! Come to think of it, it would be a good time to start that new diet, too.
