Starfish Flower (Stapelia scitula)
A miniature version of the larger Stapelias, its small slender stems are no more than 3" in height. Throughout the year, scitula is adorned with 1" reddish star-shaped blooms, each the size of a quarter. Free-blooming and at times prolific, this is the perfect plant for a sunny dry windowsill, especially where room is limited. Forgetful watering is a plus, as it needs some dryness between waterings to flourish. Note: plants are seed-grown creating some slight variation in color.

Bloom Season Intermittent
Sun Requirement Full Sun, Partial Sun

    How do you rate this product?

    Purchased this because it sounded very interesting when it flowers & it doesn't get very big. Also likes to be in a crowded pot, always a plus as I sometimes don't repot when I should. I have transplanted after the initial transition period. Still looks very healthy. The plant sits on a NW window sill with additional 8hrs of grow light during daytime hours & seems very happy these past few weeks (Posted on 9/17/2017)
