new growth on my luckhofia buekmannii

wantonamara Z8 CenTexJune 16, 2012

Yes, My crested L.uckhofia buekmannii ( I wiil learn the spelling if it kills me) is showing new growth and some sun stress and it only gets morning sun, so I guess I should move it into deeper shade. Any one grow these outside in the hot hot weather areas? I do like how the sun stress combines with the green of the new growth. I wonder if it is stress that it can take lkike aloes take their stress. Anyone know. I don't see much information on these.

YES, it is!! One of my faves I kept it alive through the famous Texas drought with weekly waterings. It makes maroon flowers structured like the Hoodia flowers. Now if it would only bloom. I stare at it alot during the evening hours.

Has anyone grown this...I am still wondering about its requirements. I had never seen it before I saw it in the store. It was love at first site. How long does it take to bloom? Fertilizer? soil? The usual questions.

The color contrast is really sweet, IMO. Can't help you on your Q though.

For those who are looking for more stuff on this plant. It is spelled with 2 Fs as in Luckhoffia.
