The large carrion flower produces reddish-purple flowers up to 6 inches (15 cm) in size that are star-shaped and spread a scent scent to attract flies for pollination. This scent is difficult for us to smell from a distance, but close to the flower you will experience why flies find the flower attractive. The leaf stems reach about 10 cm, making it a small perennial that grows easily on the windowsill of the house. After 1 or 2 years, the plant starts to flower, after which frequent flowers continue to be produced. A special appearance
