Rolling on the floor laughing Masud, that is the way the sempervivum grows, it makes odd tubes instead of open/flat leaves.


Like Marilyn said, it is an odd plant, just like it owner. Whistling

Lynn, as soon as I saw this today I knew what it was! I'd just received mine in the mail on Monday Hurray!
I love the photo (and Masud, I can see where you might think it looks 'beatup' Big Grin ) It is called 'Oddity' so that should tell you something
Hilarious!
Cheers

One of my favorites. Lynn, thank you for my "replacement" Oddity ... as well as all the others you sent in my raffle box. They are all beautiful. I meant to get a photo of the box when it arrived but that didn't happen. Glare It was stuffed full. Smiling

I am so glad you are happy with them Tee. Can't wait to see how they do for you come spring time. Group hug

Masud, it will produce the occasional normal offset, which really looks odd growing in amongst the odd ones. Big Grin

Thumbs up . I am learning. I suppose we all are learning. Learning never ends, does it?
If Arif is easy you all can use it, I stick to Masud because it is easier for some to wrap their tongue around Masud.
Regards,
Masud.

Learning is like a big adventure. I have learned about many new plants from you Masud, fascinating ones from the other side of the world. Lovey dubby

This summer it put out about 3 of them from the mature clump in one of the raised beds.

Yes Lynn, I can see the three offsets. Lovey dubby .
It is a cold and drippy day with snow up in the mountains. Drippy because these flakes of snow convert into a very fine kind of rain by the time it reaches us.
Regards,
Masud.
