Very nice Hans!

I have a plant labelled as “radula”. I also have a couple labelled as “namaquana”.  Is it possible for you to post an image of your radula again once the leaves appear? I am not convinced my labels are correct.

Thank you Steve ,

no problem to post later a pic with the leaves

I grow also B.namaquana ....( I hope it has survived the last winter )
For me grows B.radula much better ( it is stronger with a little bigger leaves )

Hans :)

Nice images of these superb plants. Elandsmontana is one I have been after for some time.

Wow, isn't that extraordinary - it looks as though someone has crocheted the edging on.
