New pup grew up.

I think that spines larger than spines of mother plant.

Does it change in the environment?


I took a picture of the red form in November,2005.

That's really awesome Kutsu :shock:

It could be a variation, but I think yours could be a sport (mutation)
as I have an Orthophytum burle-marxii var. seabrae which has remarkable double teeth, like your Aechmea.

If you ever seen Agave isthmensis, especially from Japanese succulent fancier,
there is a special cultivar which has double spines too.
I would like to meet new friends in other part of the world and would be glad to trade plants or seed from this part of the world.

Hi Chanin,

I saw the photo of your Orthophytum burle-marxii var. seabrae.
Good!!

These teeth is very interesting.


I am collecting Agave too.

Yes,
In Japan, there is some Agave of changeable spines.


When the next pup(this Aechmea) goes out, I will send it to you. :thumbr
