Back from the brink

Post Number:#1  Postby Gee.S » Wed Aug 02, 2017 5:51 pm

Removed a couple plant remnants last summer from a long neglected raised bed that had been stomped by Javalina. After two years of dormancy, Sansevieria elliptica finally springs back to life. And a couple small barely-alive pieces of Huernia bayeri have now transformed into a happy, healthy little plant that is once again blooming. Not the most spectacular Stapeliad, but an attractive, fast growing ground cover I'll need to find a spot for.

"American aloe plant," 1797, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at".
