Crassula marnieriana flowers

My Crassula marnieriana just stared to flower! These flowers are apparently very long lasting, but they take a while to open, too. The first tiny flower opened two weeks ago and even now, only half of them have opened.

I found this hungry fly eating flower nectar. It was too busy to notice me taking a picture of it. I didn’t know flies pollinated these kinds of flowers, but it’s more than welcome on my balcony.

Edit: On closer inspection, apparently C. marnieriana flowers smell like fart. Maybe that’s what attracted the fly.
