Re: Copiapoa ID help

Christer: GC305.01 is Graham Charles' Cinerea. However, if this is the same plant that you posted a picture of in this forum back in 2010 it's not doing very well. In that case a change of compost is needed. It's difficult to give a firm identification given it's condition. Thank you for your reply...

Copiapoa ID help

Hello all!

I have this plant that was marked Copiapoa cinerea GC 305.01 on the label. I am not sure this is correct.
It lives in a 7 x 7 cm pot and flowers for he first time :)

Christer, I have buds on 4 year old seedlings this week.
You have cared for them well, obviously. It's good to know that I may expect flowers in 4 years from now :geek:
Maybe you can post some photos of your flowers later? :)

The photo (slide) was taken on 9th May 1998 - 20 years ago!
I think the plant was 5 or 6 years from seed then.
Hopefully mine will survive 5 to 6 years :)

Re: Mammillaria boolii

I have bought plants of this species before, but they did not make it :(

How long will it take before they flower from seed?

Thank you for sharing your picture...

M. boolii is rather special too.
Seeing my old photos, I really must propagate these lovely mamms again.

Re: Mammillaria albicans

Tony, your plant is lovely :)

If you should make a guess, how many years from seed may it flower?

Thanks you for the response :)
