New Haul from Desert Images

hanzrobo(11)August 28, 2012

I had the chance to stop by a local treasure trove last week. I haven't found homes for everything yet but finally found time to snap some shots today.

Euphorbia ferox

Really curious on this one. It's chalky and grows like an Adromischus but I can't figure it out.

Here's the flower stalk...

a terrifically toothy Adromischus!

This is like a mini Crassula tetragona.

Huge leaves on this Cotyledon.

A good day for Adros

Agave victoriae reginae

Some awesome Gasteria...

This wavy fellow,

An Aloe or two....

I have a tiny one of these started from a leaf. Any clues?

I'm excited to share with you, Sedum multiceps.

They don't get much fuzzier than this. This one gets much bigger.

There are a few more in my photobucket if you want to check them out. I'm going to stop now.

Thanks for looking!

Nice plants.
Love the variegated aloe, and the cute little gasteria.
Do you think your Echeveria could be "set oliver"?

Ryan,

And not a Mesemb among them - wow, that bumpy gasteria is good looking and lush. Your first unknown ID is another Adromischus (the one with the flower stalk). The Aloe (light green with lines) is Aloe deltoideodonta v. fallax. Such a nice haul there (sighs when he thinks of the offerings up here - five cacti/succulents in a glufer) - I'm tickled magenta for you.

Ryan,

I'm thinking that unid NWC plant you ask about is an Echeveria or Pachyveria, with E. edging out P. in the guessing.

Truly some fantastic plants; thanks so much for showing! Some really great Adromischus. I love the solid green and red/speckled forms.

The Gasteria are just great. Love how packed that second one is with pups! Reminds me of some G. carinata forms I saw pictured the other day. So pretty.

Thanks for the ID for the Echeveria leucotricha 'Frosty,' Howard. I haven't seen that plant before.

Thanks everybody for loooking and for the ID's. I want to address everyone's comments but I've been gone all day and have some dad duties to attend to.

I'll be back later, just wanted to say thanks.

Ryan

Howard, thanks for that ID! That's definitely the one, fuzzy like a tarantula.

Jeff, I actually did bring home some Mesembs, just wanted to show you folks that I like other plants too! Thanks for the Aloe ID. I still haven't ID'd the chalky Adro. The NWC seems like an Echeveria to me too, it's just so unique, like it's part Semp or something.

Penny, yeah I kinda went nuts with the boxes, you saw that shot, huh?
I'm excited to see the S. multiceps come out of dormancy.

Colleen, thanks, I'm really partial to Adromischus these days and I'm thrilled to have found these beauties.
I love my new Gasterias too. Did you see the pup on the flower stalk?

Yes, I certainly saw the pup on the flower stalk! That's a special little treat, ain't it.
