February 2017 "Ladies plants"

Post by rodsmith » Thu Feb 02, 2017 7:19 pm

For better or worse I have chosen this month's subject. Ladies plants refers to the species name when named (or apparently named) after a woman, eg Lithops dorotheae, Gymnocactus ysabelae or Agave Victoria Reginae. Your photos should be of any succulent plant of a species named after a female. Should give plenty of scope for the inventive photographer.

Just to start it off for those that don't know which they are, the Latin name often ends in "ae" as Rod says but not always, therefore this link may help. A similar one for Other Succulents is at the end of cacti if you scroll down the link:-

The other succulents are on this same list if you scroll down beyond the cacti :wink: Thanks Dave.

Thanks Dave for the link to this interesting list. Here's my Echeveria calderonae, a very small plant purchased last year.
