Re: Greenhouse flowers

Plenty of rain, but it does not deter these plants from doing their thing. S bruchii is in a 14inch pot, and needs two to lift it lol, M theresea has only 3 heads, and is on its own roots. Opuntia compressed Monmouth ., nice yellow. Cheers

Re: ID please

Thanks Topsy, that's it solved. Emailed the previous owner who admitted Topsy,s result had jogged his memory. As the growing point is damaged, I wonder if I will get any joy by giving it a repot, and some TLC. The spines are very nice, pity to chop it head off. Cheers

Re: Echinocereus rigidissimus ssp. rubispinus L88

They are quite long lasting plants, but lose their redness after 25years though. Bees love the flowers, at least this one did. LoL. Ps perhaps it's not a bee ?. Sorry about forums orientation probs. flower colour is ok though lol. Cheers

Re: perlite growing medium

Hi Brianc. I found a helpful video (to me anyway) regarding the difference between perlite and vermiculite and their uses, but. I don,t know how to create a link and put it on the forum from my iPad. Sorry, perhaps some IT expert could help ? Cheers
