I would love to see everyone's pictures of 'Gold Nugget' and 'Gold Rush'. Here is mine compared to each other. In full disclosure, the Gold Rush did get a little sunburnt while I was out of town, but they appear to be recovering nicely.

So far, GN is pinker than GR, for me. But it has only been since March, so that could change at any time.

So far 'Gold Rush' is a better grower, with more offsets. But, it has been heavily fertilized before I purchased it. Really won't know what the differences are until next year when they have both been grown in the same manner.

I'm sorry. The first is Gold Nugget. The second is Gold Rush.
My Gold Rush also has many more offsets. Gold Nugget has one, that I can see, but it's also only half the size of Gold Rush. It could catch up.

Today I took photos of Gold Nugget and Gold Rush.

I had to completely redo my Gold Nugget colony. I get this obnoxious week that is like tiny clover and once it takes hold you can't get rid of it. My answer is to pull out all the semps, clean all the dirt off their roots and plant then in a clean pot with new soil. Goodbye weeds. So I redid Gold Nugget about a week ago.

Nice comparison photos Melissa. Definitely a big difference between the two.
'Gold Rush' doesn't look very happy about the move. Give it a week or two and we will never know it was moved. Lovey dubby
