Growing guide link provided

Growing up to 20 cm (8 in) tall, it is a clump-forming succulent with erect green stems 3 cm (1.2 in) thick.

In summer, it bears large star-shaped five-petalled flowers up to 25 cm (9.8 in) in diameter.

The flowers are red and yellow, wrinkled, with a silky texture and fringed with hairs, that can be as long as 8 mm (0.3 in).

The flowers of this plant bloom in the Fall season, due to the shorter daylight hours.

They have the smell of rotting flesh, in order to attract the flies which pollinate them.

Because of the foul odor of its flower, S. gigantea can act as an appetite suppressant in humans
