  • Rare succulent Orbea variegata, also known as Stapelia variegata, is a leafless, succulent perennial, up to 4 inches (10 cm) tall and up to 20 inches (50 cm) wide, with 4 angled, cactus like, toothed stems and highly variable, star-shaped, off-white or yellow flowers strongly speckled with maroon, up to 8 cm (3.1 in) in diameter.

    Their bizarre-looking flower is represented in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. Most of the flowers come in color combinations of dark red and bright yellow, where drawing and pattern can be very different.

    Plants may be shipped bare root.
  • Full sun to light shade.

    It prefers a dry environment. Do not need to water regularly. But water deeply when you do.

    Gritty (sandy), well drained soil.
  • USDA Hardiness Zones 9a to 11b: from 20 °F (-6.7 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C).
  • * We use 3.5 inch wide clay pots for 4" plant + clay pot option.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Weird ones are my favorite

Cute little weird guys came in 2 clusters and were super well packed. Similar to stapelia gigantea yet so different.

I love this cactus. It is so plump, healthy and doesn't stick you with any spikes. It arrived in great shape too.
