Since I’m basically stuck in a “greenhouse” (sleeping porch), I’m taking a moment to recognize some of my excellent quarantine buddies. Also serving as a reminder I really don’t need to keep hoarding plants, especially since most of the agaves I keep will grow to at least a foot across. With the exception of the dwarf agave up top (agave isthmensis “Ohi Raijin Shiro Nakafu”) even though it’s managed to grow considerably over the last year!
Agave victoria-reginae “golden princess” has had a very nice glow up too; her yellow variegation has intensified lately as she’s continued to grow at a steady pace. The big momma Agave applanata “cream spike” has been with me for only 5 months and seems determined to go nuts making new leaves after she ate so many lower leaves during acclimation. Mangave “bloodspot” in photo 8 looking luminous in afternoon sun!
Echeverias “Lenore Dean/Compton carousel”, subsessilis variegated, and “dusty violet” are also content to hang out with me. And then there’s that cute little gymnocalycium cactus with the bloom I’m waiting on!
Too many, and I acknowledge I’m nuts, but I love them all very much. (Intervention needed?)
