Psychopsis papilio has very large and spectacular flowers with antenna-like sepals and petals.
The inflorescences are erect or curved and flat in the upper part where many flowers are formed in succession over a period of several months. The inflorescence continues to grow and form new buds, often over a period of several years.
Prefers bright light but no direct sunlight.
Prefer rainwater or non-alkaline water at room temperature. Do not use water from a water softener, because it contains too much salt.
Stapeliads come from climates where they survive extremely high temperatures in the summer months so most growth is in spring and autumn, with flowering in autumn when the weather starts to cool down.
Small shrubby tree 10-12 ft tall with light green corrugated leaves. Medium sized upright trumpet-like chartreuse (yellow/green) flowers, sometimes spotted with burgundy dots. Blooms spring onward. Prefers filtered light and acid soils. Cold hardy to the low 30's.
Deciduous tuberous rooted vine. The flowers are green.
