    1. I'd love to see that! Might be a bit trickier though. LEDs are perfect for this because they don't get hot and burn the leaves.

    1. I did take some earlier photos and it looks great, but the darker shows up better on the blog.

    1. Great idea, we send E-cards so I could make up my own. It's warming up out there, need to go check the damage soon.

  10. Those white lights (?) show off the bluish cast of that agave's foliage! Used to do that on an Opuntia engelmannii out front...really striking.

    1. The lights are blue LED, they are a very pale blue which I like.

      I think it was your photos of Ethel M. which inspired this one.

  14. Amazing, how did you do that! What is its real color! I am so biased with blue and i guess since it is agave it may thrive on our hot tropics. thanks.

  15. Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and
    let you know a few of the pictures aren't loading properly. I'm not
    sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.
