Introducing the Stapelianthus Decaryi, also known as the Black Milkweed! Hailing from the open landscapes of Southern Madagascar, this extraordinary asclepiad succulent is sure to captivate with its unique characteristics and intriguing beauty.

Growing in low-running formations, this succulent forms substantial and dense clumps, creating an impressive display of lush foliage. Its most enchanting feature is the delicate cream-colored flowers adorned with mesmerizing red spots. While visually appealing, these flowers also emit a subtle carrion scent, which acts as a natural lure for flies, enabling pollination to take place.

To ensure optimal growth and development, the Stapelianthus Decaryi thrives in sunny positions, soaking up the warmth of sunlight. It appreciates well-drained and gritty soil, allowing excess moisture to freely escape and preventing the risk of waterlogging. By providing these ideal conditions, you can help this remarkable succulent flourish.

Whether you’re an experienced succulent enthusiast or just beginning your journey into the world of exotic plants, the Stapelianthus Decaryi will surely captivate your senses and elevate your botanical haven.
