Re: Neem spray query

Luke warm water plus neem/detergent in one of those pressure sprayers works a treat. One bottle's worth of water will do a 12x6 greenhouse quite easily. https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51744ihhMLL._SY550_.jpg You can have it as a fine mist, or if there are plants that need a good so...

Re: Avonia herrerae (seedlings & flower)

Definitely large enough to pot on Chris. If memory serves - it's a long time since I grew these - there will be a swollen base but not what I'd call a tuber. They don't grow like quinaria for example. Thanks Chris. Not normally growing succulents from seed I am always wary of disturbing them when I...

I'm useless with seeds


They have just been watered. When they have dried out a bit I'll have a look to see if I think they can be potted on. If so, I'll send a PM. :grin:

Re: Avonia herrerae (seedlings & flower)

Are these big (& safe) enough to pot on?

Re: Avonia herrerae (seedlings & flower)

Hi Chris, If you have one spare, I would love one. PM me if interested. Or swap if you want to. Thanks Jane I should have some more seeds available soon on my free seed list. I already have harvested some seeds of Avonia herrerae, but am waiting for an update of the list until autumn so I can inclu...

Re: Avonia herrerae (seedlings & flower)

Hi Chris, If you have one spare, I would love one. PM me if interested. Or swap if you want to. Thanks Jane I'll take some pictures of the full tray to see if anyone thinks they are big enough to pot up into pots (or not). I am always a bit wary about moving succulents as most of my plants are cact...

Avonia herrerae (seedlings & flower)

I've got some Avonia herrerae on the go that came from Aiko in 2016. They have been in a 1/4 tray for quite a while and I've been itching to pot them on into sales pots for the branch meetings. I am cautious as I think they may be forming tuberous roots ( :?: ). Anyway this morning pottering around ...

Re: Pterocactus flower bud (???)

The flower bud has been forming on this plant for more than a week, and I've been waiting for it to open. It is a plant from someone else's collection that was given to me earlier in the year. Had to pop home from work at lunch time to take a photo. Good job I did as it was closing at 4.15 when I go...

Re: Pterocactus flower bud (???)

This is as wide as I saw it open (it may have opened more yesterday while I was at work). Still, another genera to add to the list that have flowered in my collection :grin: .
