More textures than patterns on some, but I've played a little with my "bug and seed hunting" loupe, hence all the close-ups.

Patterns first, I am quite proud of the epicuticular wax coating on these as they are all indoor, the overall "leaf patterns" of these are also great!

And the second part, "loupe" edition:

And a honorary mention for patterns, still very fresh addition to my collection, Euphorbia obesa subsp. symmetrica:

Some really nice plants there, thanks for putting them up.
What is the plant with leaves covered in tiny white bubbles please.

I forgot to add labels, my apologies! I hate when people do that and now I am guilty as well!

I assume you are asking about the last photograph? It is Crassula tecta, I believe already posted here.

Here are a couple of photos of my Mammillaria hahniana (now deceased) at various stages of growth.

There was an excellent range of patterns on display this month and the competition was about pattern and not so much the plants so I have chosen MikeT with his Opuntia. I like the purity of the pattern almost as if it was not a real plant.
Over to you MikeT.
