Re: Gasteria query

Re: Gasteria query

It looks pure armstrongii to me. Their leaf texture varies a lot.

Re: Dioscoria Elephantipes

Your plant seems out of kilter. My three always start putting up new vines in the late summer or early autumn. Attached photo was taken August 28th for instance.
If I were re-potting them I would do it during their dormant period which in my case, would be summer.

Re: Aloe perrieri & bellatula?

For what it's worth, these are the flowers on my "A. bellatula". I would say they are bell-shaped. This clone is quite proliferous but not inclined to turn red in summer. BTW, I will have some spare offsets when I re-pot this in a couple of months - if anyone has offsets of "A. perrieri" or "A. bell...

Aloe delicatifolia

Does anyone grow Aloe delicatifolia? And if so, do you have offsets or "true" seeds (i.e. not open pollination) available to sell or exchange? I have some A. bellatula large offsets to spare and will hopefully have A. albifora at some point (but not right now). Also plenty of pure Gasteria armstrong...

Bob Potter ( toobees) also supplies pumice.
Do they still sell it? I have not been able to get in touch with them and the ordering page on their website doesn't work. It would have to be shipped as I am nowhere near them (and we're in lockdown anyway).
