I noticed when I planted these that some look different from others, but now they are even more distinct. One is wider more reddish leaves, the other more closed up and thinner leaves.
Both types look like they can be "Sprite" based on database pictures. Anyone familiar with this semp, does yours open like the red ones? Interesting if they do!!
Thanks

Sprite can look very different depending on light, moisture, soil. And age of rosette also plays into the mix.

Lynn you weren't kidding about that: the conditions that can give what looks like red to me and also what looks like plum to me...

August seems to be the month that they look like Patty's above photo.

I love your Sprite, Patty. It's got that great purple center.
