Stapelia’s are predominantly from South Africa with a few from other parts of Africa. Most Stapelia flowers, are visibly hairy and generate the odour of rotten flesh when they bloom to attract various specialist pollinators. In this case, blow flies of the dipteran family. Stapelia gettliffei is native to the warmer, dry, sandy parts of the Limpopo River and was originally discovered in 1911 by Mr. G. F. Gettleffi who worked as a water driller and then as a farmer in the Transvaal (Gauteng).
