Stapelia gigantea

Short notice but if you read this today you can use it as an excuse to go check out the glasshouses (between Noble Hall and Webb Hall)
The Stapelia gigantea is on display at the Greenhouse in front of Bay 4 from now until 3 pm. The Stapelia is from Africa.  More info can be found at http://anti-matter-3d.com/Stapeliads/Stapelia.html
This is not the pointy smelly plant some of you thought it would be. It has a very nice star shaped flower and is unusual in its own right. It does attract flies.
