August 2019 - A is for August and.....

Post by juster » Thu Aug 01, 2019 10:14 pm

The topic for August is any of our plants beginning with A, so Astrophytum, Aeonium, etc plus many species beginning with A. Hoping for plenty of entries!

Thank you Henry, it's an amazing little plant. The "branches" move depending on atmospheric conditions which makes it entertaining as well.
