Gasteria with many pups... remove or leave?
Bought some new Gasteria from various vendors.
Here is supposed to be "Gasteria nitida var. armstrongii" (actually thought to be just G. armstongii now)
Nice dark shiny green. Is this a true species?
6 pups on the nice plant. I would rather have a few stronger better shaped plants than a deformed clump. What should I do? I can't see how I can get the pups off but keep any roots.
This one below is supposed to be a Gasteria armstrongii that is known to be a from wild origins. Less shiny, more taste buds. Very thick tongues. No pups.
This attractive leaved clump is listed as Gasteria brachyphylla var. brachyphylla.
What do I do with this cluster mess? Rip it apart?
Try to get 3 or so good plants? Leave as is?
Gasteria bicolor var. liliputana I assume. Seems like a minature version of the one called "brachyphylla" above.
I will just leave this one together, but need to remove the soil from the roots.
Here is a plant I got from the grocery store a year ago. Similar to G. brachyphylla but much much bigger leaves than the plant above. What could it be? A hybrid? A bigger form?
Thanks for any guidance.
