Bin.
Mike, if you are serious about binning it, I am happy to give it a home. And if you are after the true A. haworthioides, I could check if my plant has got any big enough offsets I could removed.

I prefer the green one. And Maciej - if you are ever tempted to eat it - don't, send me a cutting instead! :grin:
No eating here! The plant does not want to branch much for me, so it does not look like there will be any cuttings taken anytime soon.

Oh, no you don't! :grin:

Rhytidocaulon macrolobum

A proud moment, as it took me a couple of year to get a single plant of the species, and another year of cultivation in my conditions, but I was rewarded today with its first flower (and more to come) - R. macrolobum, Tom McCoy Yem 92:

Re: Pelargonium cotyledonis

It’s basically a winter grower but can be opportunistic. I don’t water after the end of March and start again in September. In winter it gets the sunniest spot I can find, I water weekly and give an occasional weak feed. That is where I might be failing then. I was advised that the plant would enjo...

Lovely plant Mike. Mine, although grows well (but slow) doesn't flower for me. Any tips on cultivation?

Re: I've never started watering in February before.

Same here in Kent. First watering of all succulents apart from cacti - haworthias, gasterias, aloes, dorstenia and even chanced splash over brachystelmas, which are kept in back porch.

Re: Terry Smale

I have met Terry on number of occasions and I was also lucky to visit him and Jenny. His knowledge on all geophytes was second to none. He will be truly missed.

Condolences to Jenny.

Re: Aloe haworthioides var aurantiaca

Hi Ralph, I'd be very interested in seeing the flower on the second one, as the plant itself looks very similar to some of the hybrids I made using var. haworthioides. I'll send a pic when it flowers, but that's likely to be another 10 or 11 months... It came from Broookside. So did mine come from ...
