    Hello all,

    Since I am the namer of 'Enigma' and the one responsible for introducing the Yucca Do plants to cultivation maybe I can add a little here. 'Enigma' is also the plant known as Yucca Do 1715. 1715 was not a cultivar name, it was a designation from my original source of the material (Atlanta Botanical Garden.) I have grown 'Enigma' for about 4 years now and can note a number of differences between it and cyclosecta.

    -'Enigma' holds its leaves up while at 3 different cyclosecta clones I have all press their leaves down against the ground.

    -'Enigma' has never aquired any pigmentation in its leaves for me regardelss of light conditions.

    -The 'Enigma' flower is much lighter than cyclosecta and also have a slightly different structure. I also note that 'Enigma' almost always puts up flowers in pairs while none of my cyclosecta plants do this.

    -'Enigma' has a different pattern of growth than cyclosecta. The carnivorous rosettes are maintained longer or often perpetually where as all my cyclosecta for winter rosettes every year.

    -'Enigma' has a winter rosette that is different than cyclosecta. The former being more convex (like an upside down bowl) with the latter is more flattened.

    I believe that 'Enigma' is probably a naturally occuring hybrid between Yucca Do 1714 (cyclosecta) and Yucca Do 1717 (esseriana/jaumavensis like.) The full labels on the plants hints that they were collected at the same time and likely the same place and conversations with the original collector support my assumption of this.

    As for the growth Pingman has seen, I too have witnessed this type of growth and have even seen "balls" consisting of multiple rosettes growing loose on benches at ABG. Quite an interesting plant.

    Pyro:

    What a great post. Thanks for all the information! I can't wait to try out this plant someday.

    Hi everybody,

    I am not convinced by the hybrid origin of P. 'enigma'[Edit: corrected to read, P. 'Enigma', cultivar names are capitalized and in normal letter, not italics or underlined] (a very nice cultivar I am really happy to grow)

    I believe that this is a green form of this species like we may found some in P. potosiensis for exemple even if its flower is normal coloured.

    If I can share my feeling for the YuccaDo complex, I can say that '1713' is a P. esseriana.

    '1716' and '1718' are P. potosiensis
