Strange Plant

I have a couple of money plants, both back and front for good measure. They are supposed to attract financial security, always worth a try!
In one of the pots I discovered a very unusual "flower" type thingy, must be some sort of fungus.

  Does any one have any idea what it is?


  1. Therese, thanks for a fabulous meal last night, it was great to catch up with you and Peter again.

    As I mentioned last night, this plant is Stapelia, a succulent which gives off the smell of rotting meat to attract flies to pollinate it. Looks great, smells bad!

    I think yours is Stapelia variegata

    Here's a link to the Wikipedia entry on Stapelia

  2. Was lovely having you two and thanks for the info!
