I'm sure everyone is ready for another letter by now!! =)
Time to show us your 'L' plants, folks! We know you have 'em! Genus, species or common name...have at it!
Starting off with: (click for larger view)
Looks that something's off with the link coding. But I'm sure you're gonna notice and fix in a jiffy, if you aren't on it already. :)
lobivia (which type ?)
LIzard !named Nero :P
Echeveria Agavoides "lipstick plant"
LIthops that i JUST got today
Dorstenia crispa lancifolia
Stapelia leendertizae (sadly without flower)
Hope you enjoyed ! (sorry for the ugly pics, they were on a phone)
Echeveria Lucita (I think)
Lewisia cotyledon 'Little Plum'
No laughing matter
Lightning in the desert
Sempervivum 'Lilac Queen'
Another shot of Lewisia
Waaah. I want some Lewesia. I've killed 2, and I'm downsizing, but maybe in the future I will get some.
Some Ls here. Just went out and took the Lepismium pics. The 2nd and 3rd photos were taken last year when I didn't know how to re-size my pics. Sorry for their screen size.
Lobivia? I am terrible at IDs, even for my plants from seed. Tags are buried, plants are crowded.
Another Lobivia? Work with me here.
Leuchtenbergia. Somebody must have a nicer specimen to show.
Lepismium. Several species, aka Rhipsalis.
2 species Lepismium. Don't laugh. These plants have frozen in the winter and baked dry in the summer. you'd look a little haggard too.
I think that supposed orange Lobivia is actually a Rebutia.
Nice plants - I never realized the funky shapes of Lepismium before.
Great specimens, everyone!
Here we go! Mostly Lithops.
Lithops julii ssp fulleri v rouxii
Lithops terricolor - Sandpoort
Lithops lesliei 'luteoviridis'
can't resist... more Lithops
Lithops and more lithops, but you can't be too thin, too rich nor have too many Lithops. One thing I know, Lithops only grow well for people who are in control of themselves.
Cactusmcharris, your IDs are spot on, and if I knew how, I would delete the orange flowering one. As it is, it will stand as a testimony to my lack of IDing and will prevent me from being confused with RoRo.
Lepismiums/Rhipsalis are real shape shifters. A young plant can start out round, flat or triangular before it assumes the shape it will get. The shape is also influenced by lighting and season. That is, if you take a flat stem and root it, the first growth you get could be triangular with soft spines, but the next segment could grow flat and spineless. The same stem grown in the fall with decreasing light might grow flat at first, then when it resumes growth for me in the spring, lots of the new stems can start out 3 sided then morph into a flat stem.
Round stems usually beget round stems, but they can be hairy with spines at first, or like one L. grandiflora did, the first segment was soft-spiney, but subsequent segments were naked. Vive la difference!
Few 'l's from my garden: oops... can only load one photo at a time the 'new' way
That's a new species for me - you were right about Kamloops not being a hotbed for Aloeism. Nice teeth which colour nicely in the sun?
That should be written Echeveria agavoides 'Lipstick'. It's a fantastic plant, and I think there are a number of E. a. cultivars out there.
Sorry, some Palm Bob guy already beat you to that one. I tried posting the link to that four-letter word site and I got the following warning after previewing with a link to the alleged rapscallion.

Well, I'm sure you can find the picture - not your plant, though, at that other place?
OK, here are more 'ls', only done with Photobucket... this is the Aloaceae only from my garden...
Aloe lineata var muirii
Aloe Little Spikey (Kelly Griffin hybrid)
Aloe Lizard Lips
Aloe Lavendar Beauty
Gasteria liliputiana (possible hybrid)
Gasteria Little Warty
Haworthia limifolia umbolensis (pretty sure I didn't spell that right)
Here's Euphorbia leuconeura, who recently "spilled his seed on the ground" (In the neighbor's pot, no less), causing babies in my pink Hippiastrum.
Fabulous 'L' plants everyone! So great to see them all!
Geoff, that one you have as a Gasteria liliputana-maybe hybrid...I think is a hybrid between Faucaria boscheana x Stomatium. I have one too. (that other Haw. is ubomboensis)
LOVE them all! =)
very cool pics thank you
Lovely plants, enjoyed seeing them all, thank you.
How about Yucca linearfolia? Dyckia 'Dark Star' is the other plant.
forgot Aloe arborescens 'Lutea'
Some excellent pictures and plants here. Oooh not good for the budget! Really, really tempting.
Didn't get to comment before, so catching up now!
Zeck, Love your Nero lizard! Sorry, don't know your Lobivia. Let me know if your S. leendertziae ever blooms.
Ms. Amanda, lovely Echeveria 'Lucita'!
Jeff, Love the Lewesia, =) ...as well as the plethora of 'L's...laughs, lightning & all!
Dzitmoidonc, fascinating plants you have...like my jungle!! Beautiful bloomers! Rebutia, eh?? I wasn't gonna say nuttin'! LOL
Ryan, great Lithops, Lapidaria & other 'L's! Quite the collection!
Linda, your Agave lechuguilla reminds me of an A. difformis I have. Nice plant!
Geoff/PalmBob, I had not heard of Aloe labworana either. Nice to see it here & at Dave's site (even though we cant' link to it). It was fantastic to peruse ALL your 'L' plants, Geoff!
Hoovb, nice plants! Thanks to all who participated, sharing their beauties with us!!
