Hello, trying to figure out what this plant is. Succulent I picked up from walmart a while back. Has small yellow star shaped flowers. Thank you
It kind of looks like an elephant bush.
No, sorry. On looking closer those are rosettes (tho' it's hard to see), which P. afra (elephant bush) are not.
people in succulents and cacti think aichryson,, I am inclined to agree.
Sradleye..Are leaves thick or thin?
I don't have the best eyesight, but.....
Can you Google Polyscias?
From what I see, foliage resembles Aralia...not Ming, but a relative.
If leaves are semi-thick, it's not a Poly. Toni
sorry my pics are terrible. from my conversations with dr google im still inclined to think its an aichryson
Sradleye. Please don't assume it's your photo. Like I stated before, my eyesight isn't the best.
I miss so much...
I'm not familiar w/aichryson.
I Googled aichryson..Aichryson has, at the minimum, 15 species. Which speices do you think your plant is
'Conversations' with Dr. Google??? Toni
no clue about species, for now happy to have some word to call it ;) and so overwhelmed trying to learn latin to be able to communicate on here. I like the catchy nicknames lol
Oh well, lol.
Learning botanical names is a challenge. Especially pronounciation. Many names are not pronounced as spelled.
Common names are frequently used, especially Spiders Plants.
I'd say most indoor gardeners know which plant someone is referring to when Spider Plant is mentioned.
But, Spider plant is a common name for plants other than Chlorophytum.
ive been having a hard enough time with English lately. which once you start looking and see they taught you how to spell (cast spells), write in CURSEive so you can participate in some sort of gram war (grammar) for which somebody is levying some sort of syn tax all of the sudden things don't make nearly as much sense/scents/cents/since
*so chlorophytum is not a spider plant? or some things referred to as spider plants are chlorophytum and others? i seriously need a break from the latin, i went through yesterday and tried to figure all my plants out for my trade list.
Spider plant is a common name for Chlorophytum, but as Toni said, it's also a common name for other, unrelated plants.
I'm proud of how so many forum members have learned to use Latin names. In the long run, it makes communication between us a lot easier. In the short run....it's not that hard to learn!
Sradleye, I just love some antics! Fun post!
