Plant Summary

Orbea variegata, also known as the star flower or carrion flower, is a succulent plant with striking star-shaped flowers that emit a foul odor to attract pollinators. The carrion flower is a host plant for the caterpillars of the African Monarch butterfly. Orbea variegata has been cultivated for a long time and has many hybrids, some of which were once considered separate species. It is a popular plant among succulent enthusiasts, as it is easy to grow and propagate. It prefers well-drained soil, rich in organic matter, and moderate watering.
