"Shovel Leaf" The opposite unnervingly pearly-blue peltate fleshy leaves are so sculptured that the basal end is up-turned to form a scoop; red rimmed in high light. Rosy green flowers impossible to accurately define. Eventually can be exhaused by the effort producing the inflorescence--be sure you have more propagated when you spy the bloom stalk being formed. Strikingly beautiful in structural form and in delicate mother of pearl color tones.
|Cultural Code||HP TGH|
Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.
If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.×
