Help with an ID?

Post Number:#1  Postby johnbecker » Thu Jan 11, 2018 8:05 pm

Can anyone help ID these? Is the big one just cryptopoda or wickensii? I grabbed some seed from it. And what's the cool shrubby one? Is it an arborescens form?

top plant looks like a dwarfish version of Aloe elgonica.. other plant could be a lot of different things.. what did the flowers look like?

Does elgonica ever have spotted leaves? If you look closely, all the rosettes had lightly spotted leaves.

As for the other one, I totally missed the flower! It's right near work and I've been out for two months hanging with my new baby. Came back and it was seed pods already starting to open. The seed pods ran for like 10" up the flower stalk, so they must've been tall I guess. Otherwise guess we'll have to just wait and see.
