Seems to be good weather for Stomatiums. Always a nice smell in the evenings.

That's a cracking flower. I'm now repeatedly telling myself I do not need to grow it...

Having just spent hours (or it seems like days) planting mesemb seeds (the first time I have performed this feat of masochism), with many packs (or it seems that way) still to go, I vowed never again. Then you guys show me another genus/species to go on my wants list.
Expletive deletive .... what a gorgeous plant.
