Thanks Coeruleo! Now i know my stapelias are gigantea, I got the originals from a local nursery that only knew 'corpse flower'. My first lived up to the moniker, but my brother fell in love with it so I gifted it to him- the one I have now and its cutting-descendants don't seem quite as odiferous. It's really an easy to grow and neat conversation piece plant- "come smell my pretty flower" haha. I have my 'keepers' in hanging baskets, and they grow like weeds and bloom freely. I have them in deeper shade than the orchids.
I saw some of the huernias at a vendors table at an orchid show last spring. Was seriously tempted but had spent my wad.
Is that bulbo more dry-tolerant, Coeruleo? I have been seriously wanting a doodoo bulbo, but their having to be so wet scares me- I can't water constantly.
