Always wanted a Stapelia Grandiflora! Bought one and it came nicely wrapped and beautiful! Can’t wait for it to bloom :cactus::heart:️ Will be buying more succulent from here.
Love it. Thank you! :blush::blush:
Good, came as advertised, 3 healthy sticks with roots. It's in a sunny window, I won't over-water for root rot, now let's see if for the first time ever I'll see a giant flower with this type of succulent.
3 gorgeous big healthy plants arrived. I’m extremely satisfied.
Healthy plant, with new shoots. Hope to see flowers in few months.
