Re: Calling Crassula experts

Been busy in the Sperrgebiet Ralph.......but DT is "the man" with these, I'm just his apprentice with Crassula :lol:

Looks like a reasonable ID to me but see what DT says.

Re: Fans for ventilation?

I use two of these year round in my 20 x10 and leave them on for months at a time. They really keep the air moving!

Re: Adromischus help please

I meant the leaf shape and overall form Stuart, not the colour. Let's see if DT adds his two penn'orth to this.

Re: Adromischus help please

I'd like to see a flower to be sure. Has more a look of triflorus in form IMO. With all due respect to Derek, having a DT accession number without any real provenance adds very little value or interest to what looks a pretty boring Adro.......again, IMO :lol:

Re: Adromischus help please

Just wondering how/why you're so sure it's a cooperi hybrid Stuart?

Re: Are these Crassulas both the same?

I think Ian's plants are C.saxifraga.......apart from the colour difference, compare to this which I believe is C.capensis with much more open flowers as Terry suggests. I'm sure DT will have an opinion on this.

Re: Conophytum Luckhoffii

There are now many forms of C.luckhoffi in cultivation and some are neater growing than others. A paricularly untidy form with me is Baboon Point.....nicer ones are Skerpheuwal, Eagle's Pride and Matjiesrivier.
