Remember the wildly expensive $18.99 Echeveria Ã¢â‚¬ËœBlack PrinceÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ I bought in June? These are the flowers. They look just like any other echeveria flowers but more on the red side then pink. I still think it was worth the money, plus I’ve been rooting the fallen leaves and have increased the number of plants to 6.
I bought hot pepper seeds a few years back labeled as ‘Fish’. ‘Fish’ is a variegated pepper that grows on a variegated plant, with the peppers eventually turning red. Half of the seeds sown have gone on to produce ‘Fish’ plants, however the other half have produced this very different hot pepper plant. The plant is not variegated and the peppers are very tiny, squat, bell-shaped fruit.
I have grown it over three years and this has happened every time. There must have been some kind of screw up at packaging time but the company I bought them from doesn’t sell seed for a pepper that looks anything like this. And with so many hot pepper varieties available I am yet to identify it.
If you have an idea of what it could be I’d love to hear it. My only other thought is that it is something totally new that was created when plants crossed. I like that option but can’t run with it until I have exhausted all other possibilities.
I’m not a super fan of this plant but even I have to admit that it does look pretty when the leaves start to turn and the berries are out in full effect.
