Huernia thuretii is an interesting tufted species with erect stems that varies considerably in the size and the shape of the flowers. The flowers, which arise in succession at the base of the stems, are cup-shaped, with petals dull yellow in colour and spotted or banded with red and a maroon throat. Due to its wide area of origin H. thuretii is very variable and many varieties, previously classified as different species, have been described (as many as eight) using the characters of degree of annulation of the disc and colouration of the corolla face to distinguish them, but most botanist agree on the fact that all the ones described until now should all be included in the H. thuretii.

Huernia thuretii (Cels ex Hérincq): An unusual stemmed succulent with an otherworldly flower. This stapeliad has angular stems lined with gentle teeth. It ranges in color from apple green to deep burgundy. H. thuretii produces star-shaped flowers of pale yellow banded with deep red dots. This distinctive flower helps attracts the flies that pollinate it.This plant is fully rooted in a 3.5" pot.

Soft succulents will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures they can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. They need ample sunlight, good drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 50% to 70% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply enough for water to run out the drainage hole, then wait for the soil to fully dry before watering again.

This variety is easy to re-root from stem cuttings. Look to our Succulent Cuttings Guide for tips on succulent propagation.
