I'm starting to think my Gibbarum pilosulum should be fatter! More water in the growing season, less when dormant, you'd think I'd have leanrt that by now :(

Stomatium alboroseum and friends
Image Image

Do Neohenricias count?
Image Image

Hybrids between them?
Image Image

Gibbaeum geminum, johnstonii, and pubescens

Faucaria tuberculosa

Cheiridopsis peculiarus X 3
At the start of the growing season, the sheathed leave pair breaks out of the dry skin and unfolds. Then the mature leave pairs have two new leave pairs grow from the center, one pair is a leave pair that will sheath over next summer. The other leave pair will host the flower that flowers in early spring, then that leave shrivels and dies. The unmature leave pairs that have only one leave pair coming out of the center at this point, and will not have a flower, as seen below. I forgot how they clump, some how extra leaves get added when older.

The Cheiridopsis season is starting with C. purpurea.
Image

And a curious Gibbaeum that doesn't exist any more, G. tischleri.
Image

And my very own G. pilosulum, considered difficult in this country.

Great stuff Ian, nicely grown.

This unknown Cheiridopsis was volunteer in the pot with some other plant I bought several years ago. It has very nice color. Any thoughts on the species name ? Hybrid ?
