As usual, lots of plants that I’d volunteer to re-home (even if I don’t know where I’d find the space).

Ernie has some nicely grown plants, which his pots do set off well. I never get anywhere near than many flowers on a Trichodiademata, Ernie.
Hao Bao’s Cotyledon looks impressive, but Juster’s Dudleya with the sun lighting up the pristine white farina is even better. A really beautiful plant.
I do like some of the close-ups, particularly Ed’s Aeonium aureum. I also like the texture of Titanopsis calcarea which Andrew captured well.
But it’s a photo competition, so my winner isn’t based on which plant I’d most like to take home, it’s based on the picture I most like. So congratulations to Jim and his Crassula tecta flower close-up.

Over to you for the first competition of 2021, Jim
