The other Mesembs I got in Essen mostly have familiar names but also some that are new to me. I'm very excited to grow them all on the windowsill.
My experience with Cheiridopsis was positive so far so I got more of them. Actually, thinking of Cheiridopsis, I imagine rather large plants but the ones I got are so small I could confuse them with Conophytums. I'll try to keep them in this size and shape.
This one is a Cheiridopsis, too! Who would have thought!
There are also two quite different Antimimas. The first one looks just like the Antimima fenestrata I already have now, all covered in dried up leaves, which is a relief. The second one I'd never take for an Antimima at all. But it's a cute little tree.
The young Nananthus margaretiferus came with a promise of beautiful flowers.
The Glottiphyllum neilii is the most compactly grown and intensely colored Glottiphyllum I've ever seen.
I also got a couple of tiny Trichodiademas. I'm still figuring them out. They seem to grow very slowly here.
The Ruschia unidens should become bushy in time.
The other plants are completely new to me and I'll have to read up on them first. The Hereroa looks like a pigmy version of an Ebracteola.
Chasmatophyllum musculinum seem to have beautiful see-through dots but the color is more of a Rabiea.
Erepsia lacera is something completely different with those razor blades for leaves.
And the Drosanthemum I can't even properly get into a picture. It looks very delicate and I'm afraid it might dry off those tiny leaves easily. Not sure if it means it should be watered more or not.
