I know the odds of figuring this out are very slim but does anyone recognize this semp? I'm thinking it's Nocturno because I ordered it when I ordered all the other one's in this particular washbin.

As the semps in this pot grow, this one is a standout and may have gotten placed in with other smaller semps last year before they grew into their new home. It has the beautiful red color on the inner part of the leaf and some webbing (in my opinion) on the tips of the leaves. It's medium sized and could possibly grow larger. I'm hoping to get some offsets from it. Crossing Fingers! I'll include a closeup. I know it's basically a 'noid' but I would still like to find out a bit about it if anyone thinks they recognize it.

I just looked at my 'Nocturno', but they are all small offset and very dark colored right now. 'Nocturno' does have amazing white lashes (cilia) lining the leaves. Yours would be ahead of mine in the spring colors and openness of the rosette. We are still cool and wet.
Here is a photo of mine taken March 30th last year. We had a much warmer, dryer month last year.

I really think that's what this one is but I can't be sure, LOL! I hope to get some offsets off of mine. I was checking it all over and couldn't spot anything just yet. Confused Everything else in the washbin was growing like crazy. Hurray! This one looks really healthy but no little ones just yet! Shrug!

Chad,
A kind member of this semp group (Twitcher) offered semps during a culling of his collection. He sent me this one rosette in 2013. That offset you see next to it is the only offset it's ever had. It appeared last year in 2016. I just had to wait it out...

What a beautiful sight, mother and daughter. She looks very protective of her baby offset.

You've got that right @valleylynn..... I can wait a year if I have to but I'm not sure I have 3 or 4 to wait for 1 offset. Who am I kidding? If it comes around in 5 years, I'll be just as happy, lol.... Hilarious!

Chad, with all the other many semps you have to worry about and keep you occupied, what's another one just sitting in the corner contemplating reproduction? Whistling

I know it's basically a 'noid' but I would still like to find out a bit about it if anyone thinks they recognize it.


I had a story that I just had to share with everyone. Last year before I went all crazy and ordered semps from everyone, I got some semp starters from my mom and my cousins grandma who I've known my entire life. We live in a small town where everyone pretty much knows everybody. Now my cousins grandma "Ms. Henshaw" gave me a few other starters as well to help spruce up my yard. As my collection started to grow last summer, I thought I would return the favor and give a few back to both of them as well. I always get to see my moms progress since I stop by my parents house regularly throughout the week. As far as my cousins grandma, I've always been saying I'm going to stop by and time just never seems to cooperate with me. She was so happy this year because 2 of the semps I gave her made it and started to produce offsets and her daughter was telling me it really made Ms. Henshaw's day. Well, yesterday, I finally made it a point to stop by there and I could've fell over right there in her yard. Blinking One of the semps was obviously "Nocturno" and it had 5 healthy chicks growing off of it. Hurray! The same one that I have a very large one of but no offsets. The other one that was growing I wasn't so sure about which one it could be. It really made my day but I also felt really bad because Ms. Henshaw is 89 and wasn't able to come outside and visit. Her daughter pretty much has to help her in and out of bed since she been having increasingly more and more health problems. As her daughter stood in the yard and told me again about how happy her mom was from her new ones having chicks, it just really put a smile on my face. Now that gives me hope that mine will produce some offsets at some point in the future. I'll have to try and get a picture of it. All I have is an old school flip phone which I can't take pictures with. If I had known it was "Nocturno," I would've taken my camera and snapped a few pics. So if anyone has any extra "Nocturno," I would love to purchase some and get more of it planted here at my place since since I only have one. Just send me a tree-mail and I'll take care of payment. Smiling I wasn't about to ask Ms. Henshaw if I could have any of her babies, she might've gotten up out of that bed and came outside and got me good..... Smiling I'm hoping she gets better because I told her daughter I want to bring her a few more starters of some different ones and she said would really like that. I think it'll kind of give her something to look forward to.
