Echeveria Leucotricha A native of Mexico from Puebla state Leucotricha is a small shrubby slow growing species with green oblong lanceolate leaves that have a dense covering of glassy white hairs and light to darkish brown tips. The green leaves beneath the thick covering of those white hairs give the plant a beautiful silvery appearance. It has brilliantly coloured dark red flowers with orange edges that are accentuated by the tiny hairs covering the flower stem. www.manplants.com.au

A cross between Echeveria Purpusorum and Graptopetalum Amethystinum Amethorum forms tightly compacted mounding rosettes up to 8cm across composed of plump grayish-green leaves with dark green margins. It grows best in filtered light making it a great plant for shadier areas but it does take on a pinky purple hue that is very attractive if it is kept in less shady conditions. It's a slow grower but offsets pups at its base over time. A final word of warning it's very susceptible to rot so…

Haworthia Venosa Tessellata Found throughout central-southern Africa and Namibia Tessellata is a widespread species that grows around bushes and rocky areas. It is a proliferous plant forming clusters of fleshy leaves arranged in spirals. The firm leaves are broadly triangular recurved (bending backwards) brownish to green cuspidate (terminating at a point) and marked with vertical lines that form a squarish patterned design. It's a very variable species with there being at least 25…

A cross between Echeveria Nodulosa and Echeveria Shaviana 'Pink Frills' this guy grows into a compact rosette up to 20cm in diameter with deep purple glabrous oblanceolate leaves that have pinkish-red margins and are slighlty keeled on the upper suface. This particular specimen is an older plant the younger plant looks totally different with creamy-greenish leaves and only the red margins visible to give you a sneek peek to what it will eventually end up being. www.manplants.com.au

Anacampseros Marlothii The genus name Anacampseros is thought to originate from the Greek words Anakampto meaning "to recover" and eros meaning "love", due to the fact that plants of this genus were considered to be the key ingredient in African love potions Marlothii is a pretty example of the genus with slightly pointed leaves that turn purpleish when grown in the right amount of light. www.manplants.com.au

A member of the Cooperi group of Haworthias Dielsiana comes from eastern South Africa growing on flat grassy areas amongst stones or low slopes. It is a slowly proliferating species of clumping stemless rosettes with very little leaf awn and very rounded leaf end keel and margins. In the wild it grows 5-10 cm in diameter but in cultivation can reach almost 15 cm. The leaves are greenish-blue in colour slightly translucent with veins usually reddening and leaves developing purplish hues when…

A cross between Echeveria Subrigida and Subsessilis 'Blue Bird' is a slow growing hybrid that forms rosettes composed of slightly keeled oblanceolae leaves of powdery blue-green colour with red tips covered in a fine waxy coating. Older plants tend to take on a blueish-white colour with the edges reddening during the cooler months. There is a bit of confusion in the literature as to whether this plant produces offsets in abundance or is a solitary grower but we will leave that debate for…

Native to Nevada and California Utahensis Nevadensis can be found in mountainous areas and canyons east of the Mojave Desert at altitudes of 1200-1900m. Slow growing small (by Agave standards) symmetrical rosettes are covered with strongly outward pointing blue-green leaves which have heavily toothed white leaf margins and a long stout distinctive papery-white terminal spine. Quite easy to grow being able to take full sun and they prefer very well drained soil and will eventually grow up to…

Considered to be a hybrid between Aloe Erinacea and Aloe Aristata 'Tegelberg's Triumph' grows into stemless rosettes of tightly packed dark green soft lanceolate incurving leaves which have tiny teeth along the margins and the back of the leaves in addition to numerous raised white tubercles. This one is pretty easy to grow as long as you give it plenty of indirect light and plant it in really well draining soil and make sure water doesn't get caught in the tightly packed rosette where it…

Obregonia Denegrii 'Artichoke Cactus' The unmistakeably unique appearance of Denegrii is the main reason for it being a single species genus. The plants are solitarywith a flattened globose shaped and triangular tubercles which are arranged in a spiral and give the plant an appearance similar to an artichoke hence its common name of 'Artichoke Cactus'. The small areoles are at the tips of the tubercles and lamely defend the plant with a few curved flexible spines that shed rapidly. Don't…
