Stanhopea panamensis

Stanhopea sp.

Stanhopea
Family: Orchidaceae
Origin: South America, Central America
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersUnusual colorRed/crimson/vinous flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrant

Stanhopea is noted for its complex and usually fragrant flowers that are generally spectacular and short-lived. Their pendant inflorescences are noted for flowering out of the bottom of the containers in which they grow, lending themselves to culture in baskets that have enough open space for the infloresence push through. They are sometimes called upside-down orchids.

Light should be bright, with direct sunlight diffused so as not to burn the leaves.

Stapelia gigantea

Zulu Giant, Carrion Plant
Family: Apocynaceae   (Formerly:Asclepiadaceae)
Subfamily: Asclepiadoideae
Small shrub 2-5 ftFull sunModerate waterUnusual colorAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

The focal point of this plant is the fleshy, 5-pointed, star-shaped flowers (to 10-16" across), each being pale ochre-yellow with thin transverse maroon lines. Flowers bloom in fall (flower buds are triggered by shortened daylight hours in fall). Flowers are pollinated by flies which reportedly find the carrion aroma irresistible. Spineless, 4-angled, succulent stems grow upright to 8-12" tall before scrambling sideways with the tips still erect. Plants in the ground may grow to 24" wide. Seed pods resemble milkweed and each individual seed has a milkweed-like parachute.
