Introducing the stunning Huernia thuretii, a vibrant member of the Huernia genus. Native to Ethiopia, the Huernia thuretii is mistakenly labeled as Huernia Ethiopia and is characterized by its fleshy, star-shaped flowers. 

Huernia thuretii and its variety, Huernia thuretii var. primulina, differ primarily in flower color. Huernia thuretii has dark red or maroon flowers, while var. primulina has solid yellow shades. Both Huernia varieties have similar growth habits and care requirements. 

The Huernia thuretii is a clump-forming succulent that produces erected stems. It has fleshy, triangular-shaped leaves arranged in opposite pairs along the stems. As the Huernia plant matures, it can grow up to 10 inches tall and wide to form dense clusters. The Huernia thuretii can take on purple highlights in direct sunlight, but they are green in shadow. 

The flowers of the Huernia thuretii are the highlight of this Huernia plant; they emerge from the angular stems during the late summer and fall. The Huernia thuretii features five pointed petals that form star-shaped yellow flowers with red markings. The Huernia thuretii flowers emit a pungent odor that attracts flies for pollination. While the scent may not be pleasant to humans, it's a fascinating adaptation of the plant to ensure its survival.  

When it comes to Huernia care, it prefers a bright spot with bright indirect sunlight and a well-drained succulent soil mix. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but be cautious not to expose it to intense, scorching rays. If growing indoors, the Huernia thuretii thrives in warm temperatures between 65°F and 85°F. If you are living in USDA zones 10-11, you can grow these Huernia thuretii outdoors. As for watering, it's best to let the soil dry out between waterings to prevent root rot. 

Additionally, Huernia thuretii is considered non-toxic to humans and pets, making it a safe choice for households with curious furry friends. So, no need to worry about any harmful effects if you have this Huernia thuretii around.
