I love this semp!! Mine is now 3 inches across and the chicks rest very close to the hen making a great display.
Also as with many arachnoideum there is an appearance of sparkling when it is wet! Thumbs up
This semp has light webbing with tufts at the tip of each leaf, which really adds to its beauty! I tip my hat to you.
This semp does have a green coloration in winter, but I don't have photos of that stage hopefully someone else does! Thumbs up

Nice pictures Greg! My Koko Flanel gets shade for most of the day and pretty much remains green all year.

Here is what mine looks like in September. I love this one. Mine tends to get brownish tones as cold weather sets in. I find it to be a semp that is very tolerant of our very wet winter/spring weather, the 3 months of summer drought. Tough little semp. Lovey dubby
