My Stapelia grandiflora in a mixed succulent planter near the front entrance decided to bloom. It only has a couple of stems, but it sent out about half a dozen buds the other week. Wednesday last week, the first one opened. It smelled a bit--but after a day in the hot sun, it smelled much worse and had a bunch of little visitors. It's now withered--but hopefully the little visitors did their job and I have some S. grandiflora seeds to play with! If not, there are plenty of other blooms that'll open throughout August, and I'm sure at least one of them will set seed.
