Who is the real Debbi?

I bought these two plants at two different places. They were both labeled Graptoveria "Debbi." But when I look at them, they look to me like two distinctly different leaf shapes. On the other hand, the differences may just be in how they had been grown. Are they the same plant? Here are some photos to help:

A side by side

The rounder looking leaves

The lanky looking leaves and maybe some cresting going on?

Penny, I see what you mean, they dont look like identicle twins even though they look related lets see who has the answer to this one.

Could just be the lighting they both had and one had some lava rock in the soil ?
I'll keep my eye out for the answer.


RE: Who is the real Debbi?


If we're drawing conclusions from just leaf morphology, I'd say 'Debbie' is on the left. On the right is a plant I'd guess has some Pachyphytum in it, so that would eliminate it from contention.

RE: Who is the real Debbi?

I don't see any cresting going on, but I'd say, too, that the left looks more to me like the plant in question. Both quite pretty.
