Hi All,

While out this morning snapping some pics of rubrovittata and my supposed farinosa, some other Neo. species caught my eye in the greenhouse...

So, I thought to celebrate "the-non-end-of-the-world-2012", and the fact we woke up today and could still look at all our broms  Cool ....how about we play a game of "Neo tag" for the festive season again and post some of your most unusual or favourite Neo species...

...To get us started, here's some interesting ones you don't see everyday...

Neo. laevus f. maculata  ....still waiting for a flower to peek out !!  Wink

You've got some interesting species there Graeme...a few I've never heard of before. Good to see you're building up sp collection!

I dont have many, but here are a selection:-

Neo correia-araujoi. The red plant on the right was selected from a collection, the others were all grown from seed tagged as c-a x c-a.

Nice Andrew, yes slowly getting there with the Neo. species collection.

That Leme ampullacea is the same as one I showed, a cool little plant. Mine is going to flower very soon, just hope Tiger gets into gear and opens some of his flowers before the 7 on the ampullacea open !  Roll Eyes

I really like your posse of cruenta's too. I don't have that form, believe it or not !...so before I forget can I book a pup off you when you get a spare ?

Cheers, Graeme

I've got a few of those cruenta's Graeme, they do well in full sun! Also have a larger form, and both came from Arnos Kings collection. Remind me in the New Year, & I'll sort out pups for you.

Cheers, Andrew.

I hardly know where to start with the species.  This previous thread has many of them, so rather than to repost the pics, I'll just link it.
