We'll see, I think it will be OK. My S. arborescence had a lower leaf yellow up pretty good a few weeks back, so I changed the angle a bit, and it greened back up -- just like a normal plant! :))

So this:

has now transformed into this, after I just took a razor blade to the ugly old leaves. It would look even better had it not burnt a bit, but I am not complaining!

And now my S. pinguicula is also getting busy. Bad news Steph, looks like you're a grandma! :))

:lol: They grow up so fast! So happy this pupped for you so quickly. Must be liking it's new digs. Can't wait to see how it grows! I have no concept of how quickly the offsets themselves grow once formed.

I thought we were apprised that the S. arborescens is actually S. Lavranos 23251... :M (on the sun exposure thread)

Congrats on the 2 baby Pings. :U

Hence the "cf". If you recall, I had mentioned quite a while ago that I didn't believe it was actually S. arborescens. I believe the technical translation of cf = "well sorta kinda maybe, but sorta pseudo quasi".

Wait, I think we can turn this into a Billy Joel song...

Nice! And in characteristic fashion, the energy the original rosette put into growing the underground rhizome, has now resulted in the next growth as a faster growing and likely to become larger offshoot than the original.

The Ping is coming along. One offset, now fully stilted, has leapt dramatically ahead of the other.

Dramatically is right. This must be so fun to watch. I've been keeping myself entertained with my first sans' root growth. This one has also taken off in leaf growth as well, but in the photos below you can see the two brand new roots that have formed since I got it. No signs of a pup yet but I have my fingers crossed for spring!

That is awesome! What's that crazy thing doing? Isn't the air getting a little thin up there?

That's awesome! I like those new roots. I think my S. pinguicula may have been damaged by the last cold snap. It's inside, but perhaps not warm enough for its liking. It looked fine at first, but now shows discoloration in some spots. On the other hand, my S. suffruticosa types are all doing well in the same sunroom with one actively growing a new stolon and another still forming its bloom stalk.

Yellow/pale spots? One of mine was left outside when it was 40s-50s overnight and developed those. Scary that it can happen inside :shock:

Yes, yellow pale spots :cry: I knew keeping it in my unheated sunroom was a test but I was hoping it would fare better. I've seen minor discolorations heal on aloes and agaves so I'm just watching and waiting.

Mine are outside all winter long. I'll slide 'em into a heated outdoor closet when temps threaten to go sub-freezing, but other than that they're on their own.
