Gardeners' Notes:

Positive poeciliopsis On Jan 21, 2015, poeciliopsis from Phoenix, AZ wrote:

Central Phoenix -- I have many specimens of Aloe Quicksilver. All of mine are progeny of one I originally planted in the late 1990s that is now a clump 10 inches in diameter. This cultivar seems to be quite resilient -- my plants are in the ground in a variety of micro-habitats, usually partial shade (varying from dense to filtered) and low water (dry to very dry). Most are uncovered in winter and have survived to 24F and several consecutive nights of sub-freezing.

Just bought this plant from the Midwest Cactus and Succulent Society's Annual Show and Sale in Cleveland. Being a member myself who specializes in cacti, I was hesitant to buy it, but it looks promising.

This is a hybrid of I don't know what.. has so many white spots that it's overall color is whitish. The plant is small, stemless and offsets. Has very small teeth and the leaf color, other than the white spots, is brownish. Cold hardiness is unknown since the only specimen I know of is in a cold frame.
