ISI 2005-24. Glottiphyllum neilii N. E. Br

This is one of the most succulent of glottiphyllums, with thick, glaucous fans of two to six leaves. These are interestingly sculptured with an off-center keel on the upper surface, as if it were a thick slab of Gouda out of which a long slice has been cleanly removed with a cheese slicer. Plants from seed of HBG 84600, from seed ex U of Hamburg 19707, collected in the Great Karoo, Swartrivier, 5 km due N of Prince Albert, W Cape, S. Africa. $6.
