|I hope ya'll don't mind if I put in this random chat so we don't have to create a new thread each time posting something new! |
Here is my new Aloe variegata "Partridge breast aloe" I didn't realize there were bloom stalks on it when I got it a couple weeks ago!
Did know that the pup was here though!!!

|Thanks Kristi, I saw it at a nursery and just couldn't resist! I had seen people talking about this aloe on here, but didn't realize how big and fat they are in person! This is in a 10inch pot - so it is a fatty!!!! The bloom stalks are huge and the timing for me here in Seattle is perfect, because I'll be putting it outside in another couple of weeks!! |
I'll take photos as the blooms are opening!

|Good point carebear! Me too! |

|I had three of those.... the bunnies ate two, strangely enough. Supposedly the aloes are too bitter for them, but noooo-ooo...|
In the end, only kindness matters.
Science is not the answer, it is the question.

|I have raccoons...hope they leave this alone - can't imagine any animal liking to eat these. |

|Cute one Greg.|
I thought I had one of these, but I guess not. It's here in my office (at work) and mine is at least 30-40 cm tall, maybe the low light is to blame??? I still think mine is a different Aloe.
I also have a cute small Aloe just about in the same stage of blooming like yours.
Should we compare?

|This one is only about 20cm but each part is really thick!! These blooms are going to be amazing! I hadn't ever seen an aloe like this - I'd heard people boasting about theirs but never saw in person until now! Oh wow |

|They are impressive, Greg; I'm not an aloe fan but that one is so thick (in a nice way) and the coloring reminds me of Sansevieria and Gasteria colorings which are such rich green tones.|

|As soon as I saw it I knew I needed to bring it home, I kept dancing around the table that it was on, and Springcolor was trying to ignore me..."Should I get it? Should I get it?" haha And that was when I had no idea there were bloom stalks on it! |

|Nice aloe Greg I saw 2 aloes that looked like that or similar at a local Walmart. I didn't get one because I'm On a very tight budget this month. Well I already spent money on seeds this month. And because I didn't have space on my plant stand for it.|
When the past is forgotten it is destined to be repeated.

|Yes, I was wondering about how populated your plant stand must be getting with all the propagation you've been doing Adam, @adamgreen|

|Adam your seedlings are very inspirational...I may attempt something from seed this year...I'm trying to get less on the tender succulents and more on the ones I can leave outdoors, so maybe they'll be alpine succulents that I try growing from seed. Watching your success has been fun!! Thank you! |

|Hey Greg @gg5 are the blooms out yet?|
Mar 17, 2014 10:05 PM CST
|Tarev yes they are all totally up but I thought they would open more...I'll take a photo tomorrow. The blossoms are very long, closed up tubes...not all that impressive! (in my opinion) so didn't post |

|Yea, not nice when the blooms are disappointing... |
Mine is supposed to have nice-enough ones...
