The incorrect photos of S. 'Casa' have been removed from the database. The ones entered now are correct.
This has been verified by the breeder Martin Haberer, through Peter Dieckmann.

Lynn how are you going to label the 'Casa' that you have? Did you get yours from SMG? If so many of us got it from him, or similar source, should we just call it 'Casa2' or are you going to NOID this plant? I'm curious how many plants you'll noid?? Shrug!

Greg I don't have Casa in my collection, and never have. I have had it in my 'Want List' for quite some time.

It would not be correct to rename it 'Casa 2', as it is already a hybrid that we just don't know the name of, so wouldn't be right to give it yet another name.

We are working closely with the nurseries to correct errors, they are as interested in proper ID as we are. SMG is checking on this one right now. Don is very good at doing this. As is Cynda and Toby. All strong supporters of having things correct. We are so fortunate to have them.
The bonus to buying from reputable nurseries is that they will correct the error and replace an incorrect plant. This is not just a business for these nurseries, it is a passionate love of sempervivum.

It is always a good thing that we can have dialogue while clearing up errors. This is a great way for us to come to solutions. Thumbs up

It takes each one of us. It sometimes hurts when we find one of our much loved semps is a NOID, but we can still love it as a NOID. Lovey dubby
