Re: A week in Gran Canaria

Hi John, if you can correct the wrong names, I would be very grateful. I did struggle to find names that I thought were right.

Re: Small Agaves

I bought most of these at BCSS shows and events. I have found these are good places to find interesting and unusual plants, you must keep your eyes open, though. I have also bought some on continental trips.

Re: Small Agaves

Hi Jean, it must be a slow grower, as I have had this at least five years and it has not grown much at all. This is it's first pot and it is just in need of re-potting-next year.
Thanks everyone for your kind words and yes I am proud of these, thank you.

Re: Small Agaves

Hi Tony, rain is that wet stuff that falls from a grey sky, most of the year. that is what happens in the Manchester region, it's not like the sunny Kent. Perhaps people don't realise what a wide diversity of habitat exists in the UK, it's not quite desert and at times somewhat tropical. However, in...

Somehow the attachment information for Agave pumila has crept in between photos and should not be there.

It seemed a good day to take some pictures of my small Agaves, just before it rained.

Re: Kleinia nerifolia in flower

It's a winter grower, growing in the Canary Islands, so if you are keeping it in a heated greenhouse or above freezing environment, I would suggest you water it a little. Providing you grow it in a very well-drained mix, as that is how it grows naturally, which should encourage rooting.

Re: Escheveria and Crassula ID please

Please ask your friends to pot their plants in pots with drainage holes and proper compost, for instance 50% John Innes and 50% grit or similar. Put them in a sunny window and don't let anything touch them, if possible. I understand small children and cats etc don't worry about touching things. I ha...
