    Every time I look at the Rheedii wiki entries I am puzzled. It seems to me that the first three photos are not the true Rheedii. To me they look more like Petra in the shade. In the past, Scott has so perfectly shown us that Petra, when grown in shade, can develop beautiful shades of pinks and creams. The shape of the leaves in the first three photos seem less elongated than Rheedii and don't recurve under, not even slightly, at the ends.

    Anyone else have an opinion on this?

    You are 100% correct in my opinion.

    First three pics are not Rheedii and look like a nice Petra.

    Thanks, Phil and Lamar! I will transfer these to Petra. If anyone objects, please let me know.

    Mike Harris (Waykoolplantz) has the nicest Rheedii I've seen. Its also huge, over 7 foot tall and that was a couple of years ago.
