    Default Any idea on a name for this guy?

    We got this from Gin some time back and it finally decided to put out a bloom! It has three tiny buds left to go. I hope you enjoy it! Thanks Gin!

    Cheers!

    LOL! I thought it might not be the right name after the link you sent. I guess we will have to wait and see if someone else has this little one. It is so dark and I love the shape. I did not smell it, but we were using fish fert in the gh today and that made the place stink! LOL

    I guess I will edit the title to noid.

    Cheers!

    Okay, I changed the title from Stapelia kwebensis to its current title. If anyone knows the name of this cool little guy, I would love to label it!

    Cheers!

    It looks like a Huernia keniesis with a dried up flower, to me.

    Hi Colin,

    I think you are probably right. Maybe that is what the flower looks like when it is older. Hmmm? I will update the first post with the correct name. Thanks for your help!

    Cheers!

    I am fairly sure it is in the 'stinky' family. The bloom has the same shape as the big o'l stinky I posted a few weeks ago.

    Cheers!
