Re: Rooting aloe plicatilis cutting ??

I have two Aloe plicatilis and I have been told and have found that they are fairly tough. Both are kept inside in winter, at just above freezing and are given a little water from time to time. About April they come outside, in the sun and stay there all summer until late September, being watered qu...

Re: Rooting aloe plicatilis cutting ??

I have heard of others successfully rooting succulent cuttings in water. It sounds bizarre, when water makes them rot. Worth a try, with something you can afford to lose.

Re: Ready to bolt

Stunning, such a great picture. I guess you moved it outside before it got too tall to move. The weather recently must have had a good effect on the flower stalk.

Re: Colour!

Yes, a great collection of colour. I guess sunglasses are in order to go in the greenhouse, along with the flip-flops!
Just south of Manchester and I cannot remember a better summer for years, the dry conditions and so much sun have let the plants grow as they should do and they look fantastic for it.

Re: Can you guess what plants these roots belong to?

Taking into account what you grow, they are either small cacti or Sempervivums. If I had to say one or the other, I would have to say small cacti. Are they that small? If very small, then I go for Sempervivums, there are one or two which have long roots. Whatever they are they look to have been in t...

Re: June 2018 – My most beautiful flower

This is my picture of Echeveria longissima, it's a very small plant and a large flower( approx 2-3cms long) in proportion but I think it is beautiful.

Re: Cactus ID please Solved

I hope that was helpful. As you must realise by now, it's not cactus but a succulent. It would benefit from re-potting with fresh compost, as most plants do. I put mine outside in summer, in the UK we get plenty of rain, plus the warmth means it grows really well. I water mine all year round, very g...

Re: Cactus ID please Solved

It appears to be a single-stemmed Euphorbia millii. It has a nice stem, with a row of spines spirally round it. I have one that is multi-stemmed, I thought they always were. This is mine
