Beautiful dark colors and amazing watermarks. Do you know which cultivar this is? It also looks to be a heavy producer of offsets.

Oh thank you Lynn!
It is one of my very favorites Lovey dubby
It had a proper cultivar name when I bought it, but, at the time, I didn't know that it mattered so much--I just knew that it was special and beautiful and cost too much, and the tag was ugly so I threw it away Hilarious! Rolling my eyes. *Blush* Sighing!

It is a great semp though--quite big, kind of a chocolate-purple-red in the spring, then goes purple and green and turquoise, then just kind of a muddy green with brownish red until it cools off again; and it does very well in my sunny rock pile and makes many babies.

Dirt I love so many of your submissions this year (last year too!!) You have a great eye! I tip my hat to you.
Your semp does look really cool! Let me know if you would want to do a trade in the spring, I have many to choose from - both named and NOIDs I tip my hat to you.

you'll probably get spring first, so when you start posting pictures of your beauties I'll spy them and covet and remind you!
I'd love one that has some orange in it--I know you have some...
