Re: New cactus house

Re: Aloe id (if possible)

I have one that I used to call Aloe mitriformis, this is now called Aloe x nobilis. Aloe brevifolia has smaller leaves, which grow in a layered stack and the plant is smaller and does not have the spikes on the top level of the leaves.

Re: Echeveria cante

I would also add, that one E cante was bought as a normal plant and one as a Tissue Culture plant, the first is fine but the latter, always seems to have brownish marks on it and at times is a very odd shape.

Re: Echeveria cante

I have a couple of Echeveria cante and would echo all the comments here about its beauty and the stunning nature of the flowers. I also have Echeveria 'Domingo' and Echeveria 'Afterglow', both hybrids of E cante. They both have flowers with a marked similarity to E cante and I am fortunate that both...
