    How about Agnata "El Lobo"?

    Mine is basically a true blue. Just solid green, strap shapped leaves. Never gone into succulent growth.

    As Jim said, I acquired my 'sethos' wrapped in a dry paper towel. It was very dormant.

    Variety and species differ but for the same clone, what causes different behaviour is conditions.

    You keep a plant warm and wet with lots of light and it is less likely to form Winter growth than a plant that has shortened daylight period, cool and dry.

    There is a link further up for a definitive list of heterophyllous and homophyllous plants. My understanding is that the homophyllous plants only have one growth type but, given appropriate conditions, the heterophyllous types will develop Winter or Summer growth, depending on conditions.

    Of the homophyllous species listed I only grow P. emarginata. I pretty much thought I had observed different Winter and Summer growth with this type but maybe the difference is not significant enough.
