The photos in the database do not look like the same semp - Lynn, your pic looks smooth while the others have a little bit of cilia. I know we talked about Nightwood before but don't remember and can't find the thread...

That looks like what I have. Although I also have the other one which I call 'Fernwood's Nightwood' I tip my hat to you.

So then Lynn's photo is the poser? I don't see the cilia on it like the others.

Oh, I think he said that's the imposter. He wanted SMG to call it SMG Nightwood I think, b/c it's too purdy to be a noid.

May I see a picture of the one which was taken at Kevin's? Which I take it is an "imposter" (OH NO)

I like to see things side by side... so if someone could post side by side Real vs imposter it is helpful.

From this discussion are you saying that all the pics in the DB are wrong? I am a bit slow these days and just trying to keep up. Hilarious! Whistling

Ok I looked at the link and saw this. ( I web clipped a bit of it to show it here) Is that a no no?
Thumb of 2016-01-22/CDsSister/1d475c

These are the 3 in the DB none taken by @valleylynn




Am I missing something?
Gregs looks to have thinner leaves than Bev (aka websemps) but???? Allowing for differences in growing environments and times of year etc... Couldn't these all be the same plant?

Yes Marilyn, Bev gave me my plant, so the only differences are probably age of plant - as Bev's gets older it is changing and mine follows Smiling To my mind, this is the correct plant.
I also got one from Kevin that he calls "SMG Nightwood" - I don't have a photo of it. The actual Nightwood (which is what is in the database) is prettier to me Smiling My own opinion. But I only got the other plant late last summer so it may surprise me this spring! Thumbs up

But does Kevin's look very different? I keep thinking there is a missing picture referred to by Lynn that she took at Kevin's home? Confused Confused

Here you go Marilyn, I finally found it on my computer. Big Grin
It is beautiful, but as you can see it has no tufting at the tip of the leaves.

I have the true (from @webesemps) if she kept some of the plant then she has some too, and I may have given some to Patty and or Julia can't remember that part. So I have both real and impostor!
I tip my hat to you.
