I'm back. Almost got sunstroke the sun is so intense today. And not ideal conditions for photo taking.

This one has become my favorite green semp, and the watermarks are just starting to appear.

Here's the full photo of it.

Thank you Chris (goldfinch4) for this lovely semp.


I can't tell if Cresta's watermarks are coming, or going? Last year it had spectacular watermarks in June.

Patty, what does your 'Zircon' look like this month. I think I got mine from you?
This photo was taken last month.

This one is 11 inches across the main rosette, and the offsets come half grown up it seems, and still not rooting, I think they don't want to leave mommy.

I didn't know Heuffelii had watermarks. Soon as the sun sets a bit I'm on the hunt. Those are all fabulous Lynn.

Rj, that is one cool semp. Does it have name?

Thanks Bev. I like the size of 'Cresta' also. Works well in the cinder block holes.

Tim, way to go with those watermark semps. Hurray!

Julia, at certain times of the year some of heuffelii can have amazing watermarks.
Here is 'Jowan' in October. Right now the watermarks are almost not visible.

I love it also Brian. Can't wait to see it in full watermark mode.

Bev I'll have to try to catch it in the strong watermark faze this year and get a better photo. Great observation, I had never paid attention to how the watermarks are distributed.

So far I don't seem to have any that have watermarks, unless they are too young. Is it a thing that comes with age for certain semps? I see I need more semps!

Combination of weather, season and surface type of the semp. Such an interesting thing to watch for in our semps.
