Wow, photos of same semp or grp of semp of Neida? Never seen this one. Interesting thick fuzz but appears to have webbing in other pictures but not in main pic...?

Hi Bev. No webbing in any of them, just lots of thick fuzz (cilia and tufting). When the leaves are closed up pointing inward, it makes it look like webbing.

I actually prefer the tufted or ciliated or both types. I once sold a semp frame (what I all my vertical frames) to a lady who wanted it as a gift for an aunt. After buying the frame she noticed that there were spider webs on a couple of plants in the frame. She said she spent a lot of time with a pencil trying to tease out the webbing because she didn't want to give the frame to her aunt with spiders in it. It was a couple of arach semps that she was fighting with....
