Re: CactusWorld

Still waiting for mine in Sweden, but I hope it’s on its way. I was one of the people who had their copy sent to the old address last time. Is it worth buying seed to raise in Sweden, or do you think I’d be better off sticking to plants? I haven’t propagator or greenhouse now, and I’m unlikely to bu...

Re: To shade or not to shade.....

Also in habitat, shade may be provided for some of the day, day lengths nearer the equator are shorter than our long summer days and you always get a breeze

Re: To shade or not to shade.....

The sun through glass concentrates the effect of the infra red and removes some of the uv. Uv would naturally stimulate the protective mechanisms. The heat is what does the damage. That’s why moving air is so important. Air us rarely still in the great outdoors.

Re: Crassula sarcocaulis - or not

I have grown the garden variety of C sarcocaulis and it had brown woody stems which were definitely not succulent, and pink flowers. It didn't look like your photograph.

Re: Epiphyllum question

It depends how cold it is whether they stay out all winter. I do give them a dry rest over winter, if it goes below 5C in the greenhouse they go in a sunny spare room window, unheated, about 10-15 C. I will try tomato feed later in the year as you suggest. When do you stop/start, please, Carl?
