Re: Garden center find - ID please

I have an Aloe that I grew from BCSS seed that looks just like that. Aloe murei X striata is what was on the packet of seed. I bought one of these seedlings from you and am struggling to see how it's different from A. striata, which I would agree is a sound ID for AnTTun's plants. I don't know what...

Update
Since my earlier post, my daughter has tried diatomaceous earth around some mealy bug infested plants ... they definitely don't like it and die!
Is that just scattered around the neck of the plant?

Re: legal question, photo's, children n permission etc

Try taking a picture in the middle of London Bridge and see how many people stop to allow an unencumbered view! This reminds me of a thread I read on the old defunt Panoramio forum. That photo site was for sharing geo-located images - they used to show up as little blue squares on Google Earth - an...

Re: legal question, photo's, children n permission etc

I've noticed recently - mostly when I was out walking along the Fylde Coast - but in other places too that people's reactions to someone taking a photo have changed in recent years. At one time if someone was taking a picture then people would more often than not stop and not walk into the frame. Pa...

Re: legal question, photo's, children n permission etc

When I am trying to take photos I will NOT take them if I cannot avoid getting other people in them where they are close enough to recognise them. If they are in the distance then yes OK I'll do it. It is just a personal preference as I don't particularly want people in my photos, and it respects th...

Parodia werdermanninana / Notocactus roseoluteus

I've got this down as Parodia werdermanninana (which according to Google doesn't exist), but it looks very similar to the Notocactus roseoluteus that it lives next door too. Are they the same plant, but with different names, or is Parodia name completely wrong. . . parodia_werdermanninana[2019_001a]...

Lophophora williamsii shows the same stamen response. I've not noticed it with other cacti.
As chance would have it one was in flower today. I checked it and the stamens did move. :grin: (tu)

Re: When label doesn't help much...

Have you tried putting it on a copier / printer /scanner? I once blanked something out with marker pen then scribbles over it with a ball point but the scanner could still pick the original wording up. That's what I've done with my faded labels in conjunction with the brightness/contrast adjustment...
