and I think I have the wrong label, I can't remember its correct name, nope I have checked and its not me the original label is wrong.
Anyone ID this, here's what it will grow to look like eventually, shame there isn't a National CD or I could have checked its ID as its a National show winner.

Succulents not on the decline here I have four greenhouses the smallest 8x10 is for Cactus the rest are for my succulent collection.
A bit of eye candy, agave kichiokan Luna. This will be superb once it gets larger

Ah ha , thank you (tu) so it's Decarya madagascariensis.
Even I wonder why I obsess over certain plants,

Anyone cut up Aloe pearsonii and got it to root ?, I'm tempted to try it as my friend is after one and I can get a nice exchange from her.

Aah , this was from 2016.
Probably still her plant but I think it's on a graft, mines own root so will probably die :roll:

Will we get a CD for 2020 ?, the society has the funds
