Re: bubble wrap - taking it down

I'm with Stuart, frustrated with how long the auto vents last.
Back to using polystyrene blocks to open up the vents.

I'm also in the camp that doesn't take all the bubble wrap off as is will give some shading .

But isn't great that spring is finally here and plants starting to flower

Re: Echeveria Agavoides

I have been celebrating my recent birthday and have another few to add to the growing stable of Agavoides. Surreal do some nice specimens with the added bonus of not bidding for something. First is a small but beautifully formed Arrow. I first saw this over at Chris G's garden, and immediately liked...

Re: Echeveria Agavoides

That's a shame but nevertheless a lovely plant.

Is there such a thing as a variegated Agavoides?

How tough are Agavoides to grow from seed?

Re: Echeveria Agavoides

Firstly it's great to see your Agavoides, please keep them coming. The Agavoides have such a array of colours through the growing year, it will be great to compare. Tina, you have some beautiful plants. Is the red a Burgandy ? Lovely colour, I hope my little one develops like that. I've never seen a...

Re: Sorry need a id on a Echeveria

I'll definitely supply a better picture soon.

Being a huge fan of the genus, , it is definitely not a Echeveria agavoides .
But obviously it's shape may of attracted me for that very reason. :wink:

No sign of flowers as that would of been helpful for us.

First is a unnamed Sirius that when first arrived it was heat lamp pink ( Should be a named hybrid term :lol: ) Its slowly reverting, but we'll see how it changes come the sp...
