December 2020 A winter growing succulent

Post by MikeT » Tue Dec 01, 2020 5:46 pm

A few threads recently have covered the topic of winter growing succulents, so that's the topic for December. Succulents required - a photo of sprouts won't be eligible. I can't think of a winter growing cactus offhand, but if you think you have one, why not include it?

Photographs taken 4th December

Original label says this is Crassula tecta SB1393 (name has been discussed in the past on the forum)

Leaves are a bit scruffy, perhaps time for re-pot with fresh compost

Flowers need a closer look (and a focus stack)

Leaves don't look like my other C. tecta

I know some don't consider Aeonium to be winter growing in the UK but some of them seem to be for me!

The two 'Greenovia' I have seemed to struggle outside this year with water while they weren't really growing so will be staying under cover next summer!

Aeonium (Greenovia) aureum
And of the 'proper' Aeonium this one did a lot of growing for me last winter,

Hi,

Two Titanopsis with slowly growing flower buds:

T. schwantesii with two heads (from Doug & Vivi Rowland seed back in the early 90’s I think)
