Description:

This species grows in the southwest of the cape of South Africa and produces beautiful dark red flowers, which contain a lot of hairs in the middle of the flower. The hairs in the flower and an unpleasant smell imitate a dead animal, this way the flowers attract insects that will pollinate the flower.
The flowers will be produced regularly and usually grow to around 10-12 cm.
The plant will grow well indoors and do well in a sunny spot on the windowsill.
