Product Description

Huernia rubra, commonly known as the "Red Dragon Flower" or "Carrion Plant," is an intriguing succulent species that belongs to the Apocynaceae family. This unique succulent is native to the arid regions of southern Africa, particularly in countries like South Africa and Namibia.

One of the most distinctive features of Huernia rubra is its remarkable and unusual flowers. These star-shaped blossoms are known for their intricate and striking markings, often displaying shades of maroon, red, brown, and cream. However, what truly sets them apart is their strong, pungent odor, which closely resembles the smell of carrion or rotting flesh. This unpleasant scent serves an essential role in nature by attracting flies and other pollinators to assist in the plant's reproduction.

The succulent stems of Huernia rubra typically grow in a sprawling or trailing fashion, featuring angular segments with small, soft, bristle-like protuberances along the segments. This succulent is relatively easy to care for, requiring well-draining soil, bright but indirect sunlight, and allowing the soil to dry out between waterings.

Huernia rubra is a favorite among succulent enthusiasts and collectors due to its unique appearance and remarkable flowers. Its intriguing characteristics and the allure of its carrion-scented blooms make it a prized addition to succulent collections and gardens, adding a touch of fascination and natural beauty to various indoor and outdoor settings.
