Beautiful & curious slim H. cooperi type from the late Jim Peterson collection with bright white striped somewhat translucent leaves in tight rosettes--the liquid white variegations vary from one rosette to the next, but never entirely disappear, often re-appearing on pups from seemingly non-variegated rosettes. Distinctive even though the name is up for grabs. Please do not ask where and when this was "published" for we know not, although suspecting a lucky bastard hybrid origin many years ago. To avoid confusion we continue to use this designation as it has been so called for well over twenty years with none better brought forth.
|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.×
