Brrrrrrk, glrrrrrrrrp! I'm going to explode! Yowzers!!!

Awesome plants Rian. Do you pick them up locally?

Also, your seedlings are looking plump as can be, terrific.

I wish I could just pop over for a visit. It's like they're magnetic. I can't get my face any closer to the screen!

RE: Some new plants!!

Ryan I think we are bad for each other! LOL! Luckily we are on different continents otherwise we would not have lunch money! I told someone, a while back that the new rack with all the plants does not come close to the plants on the rack with babies...point proven!?

Thanks Teengardener - you will get there!

RE: Some new plants!!

You two mad Mesembers must be thinking that that's the cat's meow, but for me the first two plants In fact, it's inspired a ditty (almost a limerick, which it will be with your help)

There once was a lad from Kamloops
Who locals found easy to dupe
He thought he was haulin'
A travois of Sarcocaulon

But I just can't finish it yet - on to a monthly ops report for my other job, until this poetaster's block eases.

RE: Some new plants!!

There once was a lad in the city
He looked at city-eyed folk with pity
They saw the Karoo as nothingness desert
He knew they missed it's succulence
its expansive beauty, it's sole-stirring magnificence

RE: Some new plants!!

You hit the spot with those aloes! haha Aloe Alooides is such a beautiful Aloe! So elegant and imposing at the same time. I grew mine from a small seedling as well.


RE: Some new plants!!

I am with Cactusmacharris, I love the brambly ones. The A aculeatas look so cute and uncuddly. Love them too.

RE: Some new plants!!

Wow, Rian, your plants are very unusual and beautiful with so many babies.

RE: Some new plants!!


Josh, I will take some better pics of the baby aloes at some stage, there are a few species of year - 1.5 old babies. I do love aloes myself.

Wanton, I am building the caudiform collection slowly, but they are a fresh breeze into the collection.

thanks 1tran.
