    Trust me that's rot. There wasn't sufficient sun for sunburn, especially in December. I had another rot a couple years before.

My neighbor ripped downto my sun blockers on the Windows in the winter claiming they werein ugly and many plants were burned but that one was literally cooked! Its only got 2 living beaches in the pot now the rest are hard baked thorney sticks that grab at my legs when i walk by..ouch!

    I'm 100% sure the plant is/was Alluaudia procera. I used to live down the street from the Huntington, where they have huge plants in the ground. I also grew the plant for several years in a pot down there.

    The plant died in December, when we got 10 inches of rain in a couple days. Temperatures were in the 40s and 50s. There was insufficient sun for the plant to grow well, let alone sunburn it. More succulents and such plants are lost in this climate to rot in our (normally) cool, wet winters than to any other cause, particularly as I'm frost free. There is no mystery as to how it died.

    The winners are:

    1.RandyS - Tsk tsk tsk.....Awful. Just awful, Randy.
    2.kulamauiman - That thing barely looks like it used to be plant ! Looks like a feather boa that's been in the gutter for a few weeks !

    Terrible job, guys.

    Just goes to show you, even some of the best growers on here can have a major foul once in a while !

    I have both your addresses already so, I'll send those along shortly.

    And fella's, try to do a little better with these than you've done with the above specimens ! Ha !
