I'min SE PA, so there's not much action. Under lights Aloe descoingsii is
doing its thing, and so is Utricularia calycifida "Asenath Waite". In the
window, Bowiea volubilis is flowering, having started growth several weeks
earlier than usual, and many Schizobasis are putting up new inflorescences,
but flowers won't happen for a bit - ditto with Haworthia
turgida/retusa/whatever you want to call it.
