These plants in the first few rows of pics are all doing their "thing" at the moment... just thought you might like to have a peek through the keyhole Smile
Their flowers are such bright happy offerings no matter the weather.
Which one is your favourite?

leninghausii. For some reason, his one hasn't flowered for me for a few years, so it's a welcome back!

magnifica, this almost 30 y.o. plant in the first pic is a shy flowerer for some reason, but produces heaps of pups... I have given heaps away over the years.

they seem prone to getting things wrong with them. i remember Michael said one of his is cresting.
this is a mammulosa i think, first i thought it was cresting now its doing something else weird, possibly some form of monstrose:
few months ago:
Not-o pics for the faint hearted. Freak_10

now:
Not-o pics for the faint hearted. Noto_010\
its growing more ribs and some are joined together.

and my N.magnificus also produces heaps of offsets but its cheating:
Not-o pics for the faint hearted. Noto_011
Not-o pics for the faint hearted. Noto_012
its a monstrose mutation called caespitosa..w/ offsets everywhere, even under the soil.. but this specimen is even more monstrose than is normal for this mutation, its produced a white fluffy ball of growth..and so i can make my fortune on ebay. Wink

That is an extraordinary bit of growth Lewis, You might be able to make your fortune several times over if you can continue to propagate from it! Smile
I've never had any go monstrose, but I have had a few just decide to stop growing, go into decline and die without so much as a "kiss my jacksie"

Some really great plants there, CP. And those "freaks" have piqued my interest too, Lewis. You've gotta try and propagate that magnifica. You could have the super kabuto of the noto world on your hands there. Wink

Tell me now... how can one differentiate between warasii and magnifica? I've seen a *lot* of plants sold as magnifica, but bear more resemblence to warasii. Is there a reliable way to tell the two apart? Am I getting mislabelled plants or are they noids?

I wish I could answer that, someone once told me that magnifica has a bluish epidermis and that the areoles are much closer together giving an almost continuous line down the ridge of the rib... as you can see by comparing the pics, this appears to be so. I always thought warasii was solitary... but I've been told that is not necessarily true. My warasii is approaching 30yo and is still solitary, it is about 9cm across the stem and 18cm tall -nary a pup in sight.

Cheers for that, CP. Y'see, my "magnifica" looks very much like your warasii in terms of colour and spination, yet is pupping from the base...

Personally, I reckon I've got a mislabelled warasii and that the species description should be altered to "mostly solitary, occasionally offsetting".

Hey CPC,

Really nice notos you got there. I especially like the schumannianus...and the haselbergii,
both are real nice.


Lewis,

That plant does look like the beginning of proper monstrose. The skin is hard to see but it looks a dark red or maroon ?? that right ?

yes in some parts maroon and some parts greenish.yes, difficult to see because the epidermis of the growth is obscured by tiny white spines.
