Re: How long...

I grew some mesemb seeds that looked like that at first.

Pretty sure they were Glottiphyllums.

Re: Plant ID please - possible Gymnocalycium

I'd say it is a Gymnocalycium too. Probably leeanum as mentioned above by Karl.

Re: Bull Bay (Anglesey) Mesembs, Sedum(?) and an Agave

That must be a lovely sight when they all flower, agave looks very healthy and not weather beaten, do you think its a fresh planting. The Carpobrotous was all down the cliff face and stretched along way along it. There must have been tons there in weight. Agave looked to have been there awhile judg...

Bull Bay (Anglesey) Mesembs, Sedum(?) and an Agave

Walking near Bull Bay on Anglesey I spotted some wild growing succulents. Ok the Agave isn't really wild growing, but the Sedum(?) and Mesembs are.

It was one of the plants I bought when we visited on the branch trip last year.

Tempered glass (as windscreen glass) is treated to change its structure but this too will and can revert. Tempered glass is heat treated and used for side and back windows of cars as it shatters into tiny pieces on breaking. The front window (windshield) is laminated; two pieces of glass with a PVB...

Re: Cactus flower duration

Flowers :shock: If the plant has flowered for you before the weather will be bright and sunny for excellent pictures. If the plant has never flowered before it will be cloudy for days.
