Ceraria pygmaea with ODD growth

Re: pure pumice?

Bob Potter sells pumice and will post it or you can collect it from him if he is at an show or giving a talk, Exotica/specks always grew all plants in pure pumice.

Mike, nice looking larryleachia there, cultivation tips, mine are nearly annuals

Re: Growing dioscorea elephantipes from seed
