Hydnora Africana, This is one of those rare plants that would make one have nightmares. It would make “little shop of horrors” proud. It is a parasitic plant that attaches itself to the roots of other plants and stinks.

It’s said the fruit of this plant tastes pretty good but I don’t think I’d ever try it unless someone didn’t tell me what it was.
