Lifesaver cactus flowers are so beautiful and unique. They look like like saver candy. Marley looks happy and healthy. Welcome to Greg. πŸ’šπŸŒΊ
That is so cool!
This is so beautiful
Those flowers look really cool. Does the flower stink a lot? My last flower stunk a lot more than the previous ones but was also a lot bigger than previous.
@SirLiquorice i have not smelled the flower before! I hope it isn’t stinky.
@Syalbert you gotta try. There’s most likely a 100% chance it will smell like a dead rotting animal. But usually you have to put your nose right up to them to be able to tell. The smell attracts flies to trick them into pollinating the plant. You’ll end up seeing tiny baby maggots sometimes but they don’t survive or get any bigger since there isn’t any rotting animal to actually eat. This one is my Demigorgon and it really had a strong smell this last time. It has a new flower about to bloom right now. You’ll love your plant even with the stinky odor. They are such awesome plants. Mine stays outside so the smell never bothers me. And it usually isn’t strong enough to really bother you.
@Syalbert to take those pictures I brought it inside and it immediately started choking me out with the smell this last time. Lol it was much stronger than the previous smaller flowers. But it’s one of my favorite plants even with the bad smell.
@SirLiquorice woah! That flower is beautiful! I’m going to have to figure out how I can keep it outside if it gets any stinkier πŸ˜‚ it gets pretty cold here in the winter
