Hi Christian,

very nice pics of a lovely species. And another one I did not find;-) I should have spent more time in the CapeLeGrand NP…

Thanks for sharing

Plants in their natural habitat always surprise me with the amount of colour they have. I've never seen a scorp with red in it before!

Great shots Christian.

Wow, they have a sort of... scruffy beauty about them, don't they? :D

Nice pictures Christian! On the third and fourth photo, is it only one large branched plant or is it a group of plants together? It looks as one to my eyes.

In situ pics give great clues as to how we should grow them.

Hi,

yes, the plant in the third pictures is just one. This also happens in cultivation from time to time if plants get old enough.
