Re: Help with plant identification

Not a very good photo, but it looks like Aloe 'Black Gem' to me.

I've got this down as Parodia werdermanninana (which according to Google doesn't exist)
You probably mean Parodia werdermanniana.

It is in my opinion Parodia (Notocactus) roseoluteus as well. Flower colour is no match for werdermanniana.

Cheers,

Re: My Echinopsis is sick, Help

Room temperature should be OK at 21 degrees C, however, you need lower temperatures overnight. At least 8-10 degrees lower than the maximum temperature during the day (and under 18 degrees).

I took a smaller one, it was a small seedling in 2003, now has a 45-50 cm wide caudex.

I was exaggerating a bit... I have measured it yesterday - the caudex is only 41 cm in diameter. This picture was taken in December 2017.

Re: Beacarnia recurvata

Hi, Very nice Beaucarnea... and obviously well grown. It has the size now to pot it in a much larger pot... maybe the twice the size of the caudex on each side. It obviously loves growing on rocks, so at the base you can have a lot of stone rubble, even in bigger sizes, and finer organic components ...
