Almost 'Snake Eyes'

Postby redcrx » Jul 12, 2017 8:16 pm

I have had this pot of Striptease around for a few years. It always looks a little bit sharper than a normal Striptease. It was looking very good this season and I put the pot into a mix of Striptease family members to make some comparisons.
The big plant on the right is Striptease and the big plant on the left is Mata Hari.
A "real" Snake Eyes is down to the right.

This plant always seems to have more "white" than Striptease but less than Snake Eyes.

It could make me crazy trying to keep these all straight.

I don't even try. The whole family has been so subject to HVX that I avoided it for a long time. The only ones I have are 'Gypsy Rose' and 'Hanky Panky'. :)

This time of year many look the same. Two in the previous photo that are up front and I didn't ID them, look very similar to the others in this pack but the one on the right is Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and on the left is Jezebel. And they are completely different plants early in the season.
In this photo, across the top - left to right, White Bikini, Mata Hari, my "Almost Snake Eyes", and Snake Eyes on the right edge. With bottom two, left to right, Jezebel ( viewtopic.php?f=1&t=60701) and Yellow Polka Dot Bikini ( viewtopic.php?f=1&t=56605).

We could always talk about the white centered ones.

These are all different. That's my 'Dubious Behavior' on the right.
The big white-centered one to the left of DB is Lapdance - it always seems the "nicest".

Here's a couple more shots of 'Dubious Behavior' since I'm here - it's a sport of Hanky Panky (viewtopic.php?f=1&t=58165)

I just realized it's flipped its colors - I need to move these to the DB topic.

I was posting some photos of a Kiwi Full Monty sporting a blue Silver Eagle and noticed the top of the frame was showing the plant that I started this thread with - Almost Snake Eyes. So I thought I would update this topic.
The "white" is always a little better than normal Striptease. The bottom of the frame is showing the Kiwi Full Monty sporting a blue Silver Eagle
