Very dramatic gold central stripes on each potentially massive leaf. American Indians use this in native medicine as an antiinflamatory. This decidedly rare cultivar is actually harder to find in the nursery trade currently than the compact variegated white form as the somewhat brittle thick succulent leaves are seriously armed with marginal teeth/spines and the arching leaves achieve an impressive length, thus presenting quite a challenge to our expert packing staff: the price here has more to do with the struggles and potential human bloodletting when packaging than any other factor. Please inquire--for indeed in certain phases of the moon we experience that rare harmonic combination of established offsets and a set of willing packers to coincide. Not for the faint of hear.
|Cultural Code||HP CGH|
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.×
