Are there any really cool Nidularium? I have this red one, its just starting to color up as summer progresses. I don;t see a lot of them around just wondering if anyone has any cool ones to share that I might look for. They are really hardy here

I had never seen any or at least I did not know them by that name if I did. I Googled their images and there really are some cool ones. A lot do have thorns and I tend to stay away from prickly things so I may have passed some up over the years.

That is a nice one Gina. Thumbs up

I have one, Nidularium Midnight, which I think I've posted it flowering on here before. This was the peak of flowering back in May, it now has two nice offsets, it is an upper pupper.

Here is photos of the pups taken this morning, this plants keeps that underneath purple coloring, so not boring when not in bloom.

Those are lovely! I think my red one is N. angustabracteatum, but I really can;t remember. I used to have a beautiful mottled leaf type of N. fulgens but don;t seem to have it now
