Stink Flower Part 2

My Stapelia grandiflora bloomed today! Around 11 AM, I noticed that one petal had popped out of the balloon--while doing something on the other side of the plant shelf a few minutes later, I heard a little *pop* and saw that the entire flower had blossomed.

This excites me greatly. I wonder if I can self-fertilize the bloom? I do so like to start things from seed, not that I expect any children to be very different from their parent.

  4. Saw your comment on plantgasm and have been checking out your blog. Do you have any other Stapelias? Are you interested in trading cuttings?
