Description

Orbea halipedicola, commonly known as Carrion Flower, is a unique succulent plant that produces interesting star-shaped flowers with an unpleasant odor, similar to rotting flesh.

how to grow and care for Orbea halipedicola:

  1. Light requirements: Carrion Flower thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window that receives several hours of sunlight per day. However, it can also tolerate partial shade, especially in regions with intense sunlight.
  2. Temperature: This succulent prefers warm temperatures between 70°F and 85°F (21°C to 29°C). Protect it from cold drafts and frost, as it is not frost-tolerant.
  3. Watering: Orbea halipedicola has typical succulent water needs. Water it sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. During the active growing season (spring and summer), you can water it once every 2-3 weeks. Reduce watering in the winter, allowing the plant to enter a period of dormancy.
  4. Soil: Ensure the succulent is planted in well-draining soil. A cactus and succulent potting mix or a mixture of regular potting soil and perlite/sand is suitable. Good drainage is essential to prevent the plant’s roots from sitting in soggy soil, which can lead to rot.
  5. Fertilizer: Orbea halipedicola doesn’t require frequent fertilization. You can feed it with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the active growing season, once every 1-2 months. Avoid fertilizing during the winter months.
  6. Propagation: Carrion Flower can be propagated through stem cuttings. Allow the cuttings to callous over for a few days, then plant them in well-draining soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop, and then treat them as you would mature plants.
  7. Pruning: As the plant grows, you may need to trim it to maintain a desired shape. Prune any leggy or overgrown stems using clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears.
  8. Pests and diseases: Orbea halipedicola is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common succulent pests such as mealybugs or spider mites. If you notice any signs of infestation, isolate the affected plant and treat it with an appropriate pesticide or a solution of water and mild soap.

It’s important to note that the odor produced by the flowers of Orbea halipedicola is not pleasant to everyone, so consider its unique characteristics before adding it to your collection. Enjoy the fascinating blooms and the low-maintenance care of this intriguing succulent!
