African Starfish – Plant


Botanical name: Orbea variegate
In a 12cm 100% recycled pot

Known globally as African starfish flowers, and locally as carrion flowers, this on trend succulent is a must for the family with an aspiring botanist/entomologist. The colouration of her fabulous flowers with their unsavoury-smell attract small, often neglected, pollinators such as flies.

  • Enjoy this plant inside or outside
  • Water well when soil is dry until water drains freely. Feed once a month in Spring and Summer.
  • Place in full sun or semi-shade.

Whether you are a succulent collector or an eco-friendly gardener, this is a fun plant for the outdoor/indoor classroom that all children will enjoy. This drought tolerant plant is happy in a container, as a ground cover or in a rockery. When in flower she attracts the lesser appreciated – but important – pollinators such as flies, which in turn attract birds and lizards to the garden.
