This little echeveria minima is stubbornly refusing to offset. Instead it just continued to grow into little towers
The problem with these really small pots, is stopping them drying out. I am tempted to start again with this one, in the hope of getting a more lush clump of plants.
Others have been more successful. The abromeitiella chlorantha is starting to fill the pot. It dried out a bit over winter, but has come back, with only a few brown leaf tips now.
Winter watering is obviously a problem. Getting the right balance between die-back and elongated winter growth needs to be improved. This echeveria cuspidata var zaragoza is great, it just needs to offset a bit more to properly fill the pot.
The sedeveria letiza loves its new pot. It has got a bit leggy in places and while there are smaller heads coming through, it is starting to show gaps.
The agave albopilosa continues to grow. A few of the terminal spines are starting to turn fluffy. It seems as happy outside as in the green house over the summer.
It is funny to think that these were new a few years ago, there have been some great photos of peoples plants, all seed grown and getting to a decent size.
One of my favourite agaves is A. FO-076 (the old agave titanota). My compact form is really toothy now.
It has a very similar look to my supposedly variegated mediopicta form, which saldy has lost any sign of variegation.
It stopped growing for a while, each time there is an offset, but now seems to be growing at the usual titanota rate.
Most of the variegated agaves seems to be coping fine with the sunny summer we are having. The pot of variegated agave filifera. This is a large bowl, and they are doing their best to fill it.
The agave bracteosa monterrey frost seems more keen on offseting than growing. In full sun (Uk sun that is) the plant is a paler green, compared to those in dappled shade.
I was looking through old photos the other day, and noticed how much the agave parasana fireball has grown. Parasanas are one of my favourite agaves, so structural.
The other more inetesrting variegated agave is the A gypsophila cv lemon and lime. The variegation is getting better, again I am not sure if direct sun or shade is best to bring it out.
I think that's enough for now, I'll do the aloes next time.
