Today we’re taking a sneak preview at over 50 new release succulents. These have just been imported by Succulents, Australia from Japan, Korea and China, they’ve. Just come out of quarantine and here they are ready to go into production. James Lucas is going to take us through this sneak preview. Yeah, John. This is sort of our growing area for all the smaller plants before we take them back home to put in the retail area or for retail selling on the online shop. But our job really is, is we’d like to go to Asia at least once a year or if not twice and bring in a whole heap of new varieties into the country that no one has got here before, and that’s what we’re trying to do. That’s that’s one of the things we specialize in we’re bringing in. Maybe two three four hundred sometimes different new varieties now. Some of them don’t make it, but a lot do so we’re instrumental in bringing a lot of new plants into this country. So we’ll take a look at a few of them. Yeah, let’s have a look at them. Yeah, John. These are all future ones, because you know when we buy these overseas, they’re actually pretty rare, but this is a new fat leaf. Pachyphytum where the leaf is actually much fatter than normal, shorter and fatter. I saw this one overseas and I thought, yes, it’s a more attractive form than what we already have. That’s why I thought we’d try and get it so what we try to do is when we introduce the new plants, we try and get like improved versions, better versions or versions that we just don’t have, and this is one that’s really nice like. Well, that’s really rare, a variegated crest, but this is a random variegate and, uh, really. Pachphytu’m absolutely beautiful. Never been Australia before. So that’s what we try to do and again. This is actually, um. This is a new. Oviforu’m a short, fat, more compact version again. A lot of what we get are Echeverias. You know, like, look at this one. This is the most beautiful head this one’s called. Tiny Burger. It’s really beautiful. That one that’s hard to get. And this this one here. That’s an agavoide’s fluoridity. They call this one beautiful pink center. This is a crest! I am a bit of a sucker for crests. I get them if I can get them. But this is a ramelet Crest Echeveria again. This is a new one. We’re not quite sure the name of this one yet. Some of these we buy is unnamed plants, But that’s a beautiful MO version with a beautiful red tip on it. I reckon that’s a bit of a winner. We bought in about 20 different and andomischus. Here this is Indian club. But this is the mini one. They’re really compact form, and you can see behind me. The bigger version behind you and the mini one. Here you can really see. There really is a difference between the two of them again. Another really rare, one kind of item. Variegate absolutely superb. Not many people seen this one very hard to get and these plants even overseas cost a lot of money. Lenopetalum. I don’t think this has been in here before. I’ve never seen one We do have the Variegate version, but we’ve never had the normal versions, especially this is guttatum and this is. I actually forget the name of this one. I’m going to have to look it up, But this is a really hot new variegate and we would have bought more, but they’re really hard to get so that one’s an aeonium. No, no, no echivira. And we got it in as Gibbflora, so it’s a gibbiflora type, but which one it is. I’ve got to look up the name, but this is a really lovely one, just red, yellow and white. It’s all in one with the green in a rib, very colorful, this one. This is another agavoide’s type. This one’s called Magic Corona. Well, we have to try it out, but it looked good overseas, so that’s why we got it, all right, it’s! The new agavoide’s another variegate salute! This would be, that’s a Park, Kwan Jay hybrid. I reckon by the look of that one there by his intense another. What’s this noble red? It’s a little mini echeveria real tiny, one, really lovely colors on it and really quite small. Here we go. This is a new type of variegate now. They called a candy cane overseas. I don’t think we can call it candy cane because there is already candy cane here. But that’s a distinctly different variegate. Crassula, there’s another another Crassula we’ve got here. I always keep my eye open for. Crassula, this is the deep nudicauli’s deep red form. It obviously goes deep. Red in the autumn. Months is called Heart’s Delight. This is a variation of raindrops. Instead of having the round drop, it’s more Got a heart-shaped drop on it and there’s not a lot in Australia, so we bought a few extras in this is, um, golden glow variagate. You can see the color coming in here and goes when stressed we stretch these in the quarantine house. Pretty hard. Here’s a batch of new kalanchoes. We know a gentleman overseas who does a lot of hybridizing of kalanchoes? And he gets some very interesting forms. We’ve picked out some of what we think are the better forms over there. There’s a couple of longissimo hybrids and some shaviana types, a few new ones. They’re suffering about these. They’ve really had no water for a long time. Echeveria amoena. I’m not sure about that one, but we’ll check that out. Yeah, this one’s a really miniature it’s. A some sort of new, really miniature Echeveria really, really tiny one. It’s a very colorful one here. Minor Echovira minor. Oh, yeah, from Mr. Lee, Gil Jay. Yeah, I’ve got a feeling. This is a specie that somebody’s picked up in South America. I’ve got a feeling that’s what I’ve got to go back and look at our records. This is, this is a really lovely one, this one, but it’s all in Japanese, so I can’t translate it for you, but you can see. It’s got beautiful white markings on it. And here we are. This is the Pink champagne. This is the really good pink champagne. This one, we’ve got quite a few of those. This time we’ve missed out on Pinks a bit in the past, got reds, purples and some other greens whites, but always miss out on the pink. That’s always the most popular overseas and the hardest to get and we have some new hybrids here of cotyledons, and this is another lovely one. This is one we don’t have in Australia at all. Um, Sedeveria Rolly. But the variegate form with the white margin, there is a silk variegation form, which is like stripy yellow marks, but this is a really well marked, you know, yet, white stripe, green mid-rib type and Cotyledon moon glow variegated really hard to get, that’s that’s. A really outstanding one is, uh, that’s the new sedum. Joyce Tulloch. Variegate quite unusual but really, really good color. That’s a really nice, brightly marked very great that look at this one. This is Tapalpa really hard to get planned, but we’ve I’ve got it in before, but it’s not done. Well, I’m really happy we get this one going. I reckon this is one of the real prizes of the Agavoides group, Tapalpa and all right, the other one. We got Giant greenovias. This this one’s really rare a year ago. These were selling for $120 each in Japan. This is this grows. Oh, four or five times bigger than the normal aureum that people know. But that’s another one that we don’t have over here, which I’m looking forward to growing. There’s a lot of Ameona. Yeah, a lot of ameona. We’ve got to get these named properly. There’s again. New varieties in. Yeah, we’ve just got this specie name on them. Now we can do. This is the andromischus. I have been working on andromischus for quite some time now. I just really like them and they’re pretty hard to get in australia. Good varieties. We have here around about 20 new ones. I’m not going to go through them. All I’m going to show you a couple of them. That are I think are really exceptional. This one’s called Coffee Bean. You’ll notice the new tips go. Brilliant red orange. Red Brown is a strange color but really dark green leaves and very small. You can see it’s more taller, more branched. This is a marianae herrei type, but a really different one. This is a a really tight, compact one. I really like I don’t know we call it. Look, I’m not positive for how they name them in Asia, Im. I have to really do a bit of work on this. We have down as cristatus var schoenlandii. Now whether that’s right or not, I don’t know, I’m going to do some research on them, but that’s one we’ve never had here before. We also have a black leaf cooperi just plain. This actually goes really dark. All the new leaves go quite dark on it and this came out of a shade house, so it’s not showing great color. This one is a heart shaped leaf. You can see here, see little heart shapes in it. It’s quite different. A really small, compact, really nice. I like this one really short, fat, more branched. That’s that must come from a really hard area to be that white, okay. This is a bit of a treasure. Bryan Makin. First time I’ve ever owned this one. I do have one called the dark side, but you know that’s. This is the first for me, so I’m really chuffed. I’ve got this one. Ah, schuldtianu’s look at the beautiful wrinkling on the edge gets this black ripply edge on it. Fabulous plant. This is a really silver leaf one so and then we got another form. It’s a marianae herryi pink form. So there’s probably about 20 odd new plants here. Oh, yeah, this is a bit special well. We actually bought a few more of these ones. This is another Mariana Heria type and only two have made it out of quarantine. This is obviously a bit difficult to grow, So I don’t know the name, but I’m looking forward to growing it. This will show you how good a champagne can get. These have been growing over winter with hardly any water really kept dry, but look at the colors and absolutely superb, beautifully white marked. This is the Romeo Cross Laui now. I’ve got a real soft spot for Ionians Because they can actually be grown over half of Australia and grow outdoors indoors in glass houses as potted specimens garden specimens. You can have them everywhere, but this is a new one. Look, it doesn’t. Look that great now. But when I saw this in Asia, this has been in a really small pot really pressed into across really small quarantine house. It gets a beautiful rippling leaf, and it goes bright red and its name. Akafuji that means Red. Fuji, which is Fuji in Japan. Japanese is good luck, So this is a really beautiful one. There’s a couple more here. We finally got Fiesta. That’s a new Altamaan, hybrid and different form of variegation very stable. This one, too, that’s a really good one. That’s another lovely one. I really like that’s a slightly different one than Mardi Gras but different sort of coloring, but not the best color. Now it’ll develop later. Better, John. This is a new one for Australia. Emerald ice, really beautiful, lovely, clear, white variegation small leaf really, really attractive plant. This won’t be a big grower. This is going to be a small, more compact form. We hope you enjoyed that. Look at new succulents.
