Thanks guys, it is definitely one of my favorites. And yup, the first one is just a leopoldo-horstii. I don't think people abuse their plants enough. It sits out with my Hechtias and cacti in full sun and I think I have it potted in just bark.

They are great looking Hoh's. I grow all my Hohs in full sun. I think they like a bit of heat.

Here is my small H.leopoldo-horstii

I am very impressed with the second picture , tag looks to be
H leopoldo-horstii x H correia-aroujoi . I have a similar cross with H, vestita the most likely parent.

Ha ha, I love that plant as well. I was wondering if anyone was going to notice it. It is a creation of one of the forum members. So far it looks like it is going to be a great grower for me. It'll be interesting to see how big it gets and if the leaves don't flop over.
