Re: Another unusual hybrid

Re: Another unusual hybrid

What does it do when it gets bigger, stay upright or sprawl?

Re: Cactus species not in cultivation...

The peanut cactus, Echinopsis chamaecereus, is one that is very widely grown but has never been found in habitat again I believe.

Re: Aylostera euanthema

That's really interesting, I had always assumed bicoloured flowers were the norm for some Sulcorebutia species, I hadn't considered it was because of selective collecting. As someone who will never get to see cacti in habitat, I love finding out this kind of stuff from people who have. I don't actua...

Re: Adromischus help please

That's a magnificent plant, I really love that clone. One day I will acquire some clones that aren't from Wilkinsons. I don't imagine I will ever grow a big specimen and I only have a small greenhouse so small plants do have the advantage that I can fit more in. I got a free tray of Adromischus plan...

Re: North West Cactus Mart 2019

Thank you. I think I bought 2 Tylecodon, a caudiciform mesemb, an Adromischus marianae, a medusoid Euphorbia and a Haemanthus there, so it was an interesting selection of stuff.

Re: North West Cactus Mart 2019

Does anyone know who the stall on the front row on the left was? I bought quite a few interesting plants from them. Describe where it was and I'll see if I can work it out for you. Was it near the canteen or near Ian Robinson? Cacti or Succulents? Thank you. Yes, it will have been near the canteen....

Re: Adromischus help please

That's a lovely cooperi, Kathy. Probably the clone that Stuart Riley would call Burgundy. Here are some of my clones this morning - not coloured up too much yet this summer as have been grown at floor level in the greenhouse this winter. Cooperi clones.jpg Front right is Burgundy which goes complet...
