Product Description

Huernia whitesloanea is a captivating and distinctive succulent plant that belongs to the Apocynaceae family. Native to South Africa, particularly in the Northern Cape and Western Cape provinces, this succulent is renowned for its unique appearance and intriguing flowers.

The most striking feature of Huernia whitesloanea is its remarkable and unusual flowers. These star-shaped blossoms are characterized by intricate and attractive markings, often displaying shades of maroon, red, brown, and cream. Like many other species in the Huernia genus, the flowers of Huernia whitesloanea emit a pungent odor resembling the smell of carrion or rotting flesh. This unpleasant scent serves to attract flies and other pollinators, aiding in the plant's reproduction.

The succulent stems of Huernia whitesloanea typically grow in a compact, clumping habit, with angular segments and small, soft, bristle-like protuberances along the segments. Caring for this succulent involves providing well-draining soil, bright but indirect sunlight, and allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. It thrives in arid and dry conditions, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation.

Huernia whitesloanea 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 settings.
