Orbea variegata is commonly known as Starfish Plant, Carrion Plant, or Starfish Cactus. It is native to South Africa and belongs to the Asclepiadaceae family. The Stapelia Orbea variegata grows erect, branching above ground and forming clumps, reaching a height of 10 cm. The flower of this plant is starfish-shaped, greenish-yellow with brown patches or blotches. It flowers in late summer or autumn. The plant is mildly frost-hardy and grows at a fast pace when exposed to the right conditions. This summer-dormant plant needs light shade to full sun for impressive growth.

  • Botanical Name: Stapelia orbea variegata
  • Common Names: Starfish Cactus, Starfosh Flower

Here are some key features and care tips for the Starfish Cactus:

  1. Appearance: The Starfish Cactus features thick, succulent stems that grow in a star-like pattern, resembling a starfish. The stems are typically mottled with shades of green and cream, with occasional variegation. The plant may spread and form clumps over time.
  2. Flowers: One of the most distinctive features of the Starfish Cactus is its unusual and striking flowers. The flowers are star-shaped and can reach several inches in diameter. They often have a hairy or fuzzy texture and come in various shades of red, orange, or yellow. The flowers emit a strong odor similar to rotting meat, which attracts flies for pollination.
  3. Light Requirements: Starfish Cactus thrives in bright, indirect light. While it can tolerate some direct sunlight, especially in the morning or late afternoon, it’s best to provide filtered sunlight to prevent sunburn on the delicate stems. Indoors, place the plant near a south- or west-facing window where it can receive bright light.
  4. Watering: Like most succulents, Starfish Cactus prefers infrequent but thorough watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and then water deeply until water drains out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can lead to root rot. In winter, reduce watering frequency as the plant’s growth slows down.
  5. Soil: Plant Starfish Cactus in a well-draining succulent or cactus potting mix. You can also add perlite or coarse sand to regular potting soil to improve drainage. Ensure that the pot has drainage holes to prevent water from pooling at the bottom.
  6. Temperature and Humidity: Starfish Cactus prefers warm temperatures between 65°F and 80°F (18°C to 27°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures but should be protected from frost. While it doesn’t require high humidity, it appreciates good air circulation.
  7. Fertilizing: Feed Starfish Cactus with a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid fertilizing during the dormant winter months.
  8. Propagation: Starfish Cactus can be propagated from stem cuttings. Simply snip a healthy stem with a few nodes and allow the cut end to callous over for a few days before planting it in well-draining soil. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop, usually within a few weeks.

Overall, the Starfish Cactus is a unique and low-maintenance succulent that makes a captivating addition to any succulent collection or desert-themed garden. With its striking appearance and fascinating flowers, it’s sure to be a conversation starter in any space.
