Re: New arrival-Euphorbia sp.

I've got the same plant, but ordered from Petr this year so I guess you've got a years headstart on me. Since ordering in june-july my plant has done nothing, it is incredibly slow :shock: will take years and years to make a nice 'bushy' specimen I guess. Only thing I've had any success with my anka...

Re: More Aloes

Nice little haemanthifolia there Ernie, I have 4 plants myself of similar or slightly smaller size from tissue culture. They have been kept cool, damp and shady so far and they are doing really well. Hope yours survives, they are notoriously difficult :grin:
