This is a GREAT image.
I've been looking for this BIZZARE plant all over.
Thanks to you I've FOUND it.
Am going to "borrow" your notes to describe my image.
Thanks & warm regards,

Hi Renato,
Thanks for this interesting contribution. We had one of our trees in Johannesburg (South Africa) covered with this climber but never discovered it's name. BTW in full bloom it smelled like rotten flesh.

I have added your work to my new theme "nature's oddities.

Greetings from the Tzaneen Dam, Limpopo
