Re: Tylecodon identity

Thanks. T. striatus is what I was thinking of. It certainly roots easily and does need pruning. :smile:
Yes it was labelled but that was between 1 and 2 decades ago! Somewhere along the road it has got lost :sad:

Tylecodon identity

HI all,
Any guidance on the identity of this Tylecodon? I got it from Ralph and I think I know the answer but I'd welcome confirmation!
A stunning beautiful succulent, outplays all those cacti :grin:

Re: Variation in size and marking

Low chance of flowers yet, but stranger things have happened! They still have immature "fissures". They are the narrow ones that seedlings have and will, with coming splits, grow right across the plant. Doesn't mean they absolutely won't flower, but does suggest they are still quite immature. Cheers...

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

What Chez2 said. It is awkward for photographers. However, with the technological opportunities today and the wide distribution of images on the web, there are responsibilities on a photographer who takes images where the subject is potentially identifyable. If they are not ifentifyable I understamd...

Re: A lovely clump of Mammillaria bocasana (Pink and yellow flowers on same plant)

FWIW I think these are separate seedlings, no evidence of where one "offsets" from another. They have been growing together for so long that separating them will do a lot of damage! Nice potful of friends!

Re: A new Ariocarpus species?

Is there a second edition? I missed that :smile:
Its frontispiece crows "Profusely illustrated" and the drawings are rather superb!

Re: A new Ariocarpus species?

Is this related? Currently in mammillaria, but the text says newer works are putting it in Anhalonium.

Re: Astrophytum - what is going on here?

I'm with Chris on this. Every now and then astros decide to grow another rib amd then change their mind and drop it. Presumably the chemistry and geometry at the meristem is neatly balanced between 5 and 8 ribs being the best solution. I expect this has happened leaving an immature areole or 2. Chee...

Re: Aylostera question

Doesn't look much like a Rebutia. Perhaps a Lobivia? I see the name, L. nigrispina, online, and some pictures are similar, though others not so much, so perhaps it is a bit confused.

Re: Areoles on tips of petals

Wow, very interesting! They have a very spiney flower tube but they shouldn't be on the tip of the petals! :grin: Does this plant always do that, or is it a peculiarity this year?
