In my case my Pleiospilos bolusii plants. The first pic is a flatter branched specimen...

Ryian,

So, please explain the difference. Wait, how do they have yellow flowers? That's different for me, raised by wolves and the rose-flowered P. bolusii.

This is almost a geologic shift for me. Bear with me the next few minutes...

Mostly yellow for bolusii, orange tinted at end, mainly orange in nelii. Do not know about the wolves and bears! hehe

i just bought a P. bolusii that was mislabeled as a P. neli. I knew that if I waited long enough that you, would clear up my wrong ID. I couldn't remember the name for it. Thank you Ryian. You saved me a google search.

Rian,

I was confused. So many Mesembs, so few in my collection - P nelii was what I was remembering as orange-flowered. Silly beaver*, I was thinking the wrong plant.
