I recently bought a mesemb that was marked glottyphytum (sorry if I misspelled that) but it looks more like gibbaeum to me! But could gibbaeum have an orange flower?? Can anyone identify this mesemb?
"Could you be Gibbaeuuuuuuuuum... (Oh yeah) and be Gibbaeummmm?
Don't let them fool ya'...
It could be G. oligocarpum. (oh, yeah!)
Try to get a picture of the flower open.
Thanks for the song, Ryan! Hee heeeeeeee!
Thanks, Ro! I have a song in my heart and I gotta sing!
cybunnies, every Gibbaeum I've seen has purple, pink or white flowers. Glotts do have big yellow blooms so based on the color and shape, I would guess oligocarpum. I've been wrong before, though!
Why are the leaves so small and not stretched out?
Here's another pic
