Gracili kids all grown up

... or almost grown up. :)
It's the time of the year when our plants don't get enough light and - most importantly! - the camera doesn't either. :D It's all dark without a flash, so I've taken a couple of pics with it (allthough I normally try to avoid it) which are now too light, oh well.. I've sown these gracilidelineata back in 2009 (check out the old family photo!) and there are eight plants left now. Last year they've grown a bit too long but got corrected with this regeneration. The thing is they've regenerated recently but have the whole winter still ahead of them. I'm not watering to keep them from growing until the light situation is better. But I guess I'll have to water them if they get too wrinkly over the next months and just hope it won't ruin their shape. We'll see.

    1. True! Compared to lesliei and such that show pretty colors and pattern even with their first leaf change, these gracilidelineata were weird-looing for years until the pattern and color got stable. Worth the wait though. :)
