A few unknown plants I bought recently

Post by Victoria » Sat Nov 18, 2006 11:02 pm

Hi,

I am posting some pictures of some plants I bought recently from Holly Gate cactus nursery that had no labels.

The first one is a succulent with nice furry leaves, I am sure I saw some larger ones in the cactus garden there but neglected to write down the name.

Next is a Haworthia that was in a mixed bunch of Haworthia, I'm getting rather fond of this genus and this one I liked as it has rough textured leaves. Is it possible to tell which species it may be?

A Stenocactus with no species name, I imagine it is difficult to tell them apart but worth a try.

Lastly, this cactus had no label at all but I just had to have it as it is such a great purple colour, dark-bodied and purple/red coloured cacti are some of my favourites. Any ideas what is it?

Thanks for any suggestions for these four.

Could do with a bigger picture of the Haworthia, possibly longiana (pic attached), but there are are more than a few hybrids that look simular.

I'm surprised such a reputable nursery let you leave with unlabelled plants (and that you didn't ask for labels - I'm sure they know what they are) That first one looks like an Aichryson - holly gate's website lists A. x aizoides (=domesticum, which is the name I'm familiar with).

the two Stenocactus they list are multicostatus an vaupelianus, so unless they had others in quantities too few to list yours is probably one of those.

I know, it was silly of me not to ask. The Haworthia and Stenocactus were labelled but just as 'mixed'.

Here is a larger picture of the Haworthia.
