2006 – Super Stapelia

The well-established Stapelia nobius that Janet Kister bought from the members’ table during the HSCSS Show and Sale blossomed into an impressive plant with four large flowers. The hairy, star-shaped blooms were over 8 inches in diameter. As with other stapeliads, the odor of the flowers attracted flies. The stapelia’s larger parent plant, which still belongs to Nikki Murdick, reportedly had seven big buds preparing to bloom.
