Neohenricia sibbettii

Neohenricia sibbettii is a true miniature. This is an extreme closeup showing the rugose leaf tips. They can make a very impressive mound if grown nicely and they're quite easy to grow, but to me they are most impressive under the closeup lens.

I just got back in from the greenhouses to make sure the heaters are working OK. We're getting our first (and hopefully last) dose of arctic weather with lows in the mid 20s (-4C) tonight and into the teens (-8C or so) tomorrow night. Uhg. We've had some winters without a true hard frost, but obviously this isn't going to be one of them. At least there's no moisture with it and it won't last more than 2 or 3 days as it moves east where it's supposed to be - on the plains!
