Flowers are produced in a dense inflorescence, which is most often situated near the base of the plant.
Each flower is very showy at maturity, consisting of a fleshy, fused, 5-lobed corolla decorated in shades of pink and red. As far as I can tell, this is not one of stinkier members of the family.
Though I have found pictures of flowers crawling with maggots, most growers fail to comment on any strong odors. In fact, aside from limited care instructions, detailed descriptions of the plant represent the bulk of the scientific information available on this odd species.
