Re: Succulent Euphorbia remains cause Namibian fairy circles

Hi Pat
I enjoyed reading that, thank you. I've seen it described on quite a few nature documentaries. As unknown.
With the continued pressure's on very dry ecosystems, I can only hope conservation in the Namid desert can be successful.

Sinningia leucotricha.
Just finished growing it's new fuzzy leaves, in just a few weeks, these will last nearly a year. the old leaf stem's just fall away in early march. Removing them is quite satisfying.
