Upright angled reddish jade leaves in whorls of three on toppling stems. This is a famous traditional variety (from the Hummel days) that has alway been know by the perhaps original collector's name. We do not know the species. Reliable when grown in orchid mixes, but slow and only developing the reddish mahogany rose tones if grown in very high light and starved of rich fertilizer. Sent as unrooted cuttings in moss. We can root and establish for you if we have time.
|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.×
