They look pretty healthy and the price was right! Unfortunately once an ID tag is lost for a semp, its nearly all but impossible to ID them again since so many variables affect how they look - temperatures, soil, amount of water/light, etc. Plus the fact that each semp goes through so many changes during a growing season. Unless they're very unusual, like 'Oddity'.

Chickhill - another reason NOIDs bought from nurseries can't be ID'd is because they are probably seed grown, and therefore possibly not true to the parent anyway! I'm pretty sure the only way to keep a semp ID'd is to take offsets or plant propagation - leaf or root...hope this helps! I tip my hat to you.

I like to have names for my plants if possible so it's ok if they don't get ID. They are pretty and different. Group hug
