Re: North West Cactus Mart 2019

Re: Scarred Echeveria

Maybe sunburn? We have had some hot sun recently and it is easy to be caught out like this. I had a few last year that got burnt. They were in the greenhouse and it was very hot. I brought them outside but it was too late. They still are not fully recovered.

Re: How to flower :Gasteria bicolor

I have quite a lot of Gasterias, some flower regularly. My regime, is to keep them dry and cool over winter. Water them from spring onwards, using the good soak and drying out completely method, and feed occasionally. I tend to leave them in the greenhouse and in a fairly sunny place, so that they h...

Re: Harrogate Spring Flower Show 2019

Re: Aeonium propagation question

I have come across several instances of leaf propagation recently. The advice I picked up is that the thicker leaves varieties work best. A tabuliforme are quite thin leaved, so if they work they should all work. Patience and keeping them cool and shaded is probably the best way to succeed. I have t...

Thank you. The Hotel Jardin Tecina in Playa Santiago. It's quite a good place to stay, as it is on a bus route and the ferry stops there, too.
