Re: Growing dioscorea elephantipes from seed

Re: Echeveria Agavoides..the real deal or marketing gimmick?

Its all a gimmick, I sent an acquaintance a few like burnt burgundy and she promptly renamed them red robin and sold one, at a good mark up :eek:, no more parcels from me .

Also Tony, the option to report the post for being in the wrong area still doesn't work.

Re: Favourite Tylecodon

I suggested this as I haven't been going into the greenhouse as often but do agree it's not always a safe method for succulents and can't be used long term.
You have more experience than me so go with Terry's advice

Re: Cleistocactus winteri colademononis Solved

Tony, Very off topic but you asked so remember I was the first moderator of the forum I did quite like the title 'she who must be obeyed :roll: . I asked Vik to join after a while and then later we invited Bob to be a mod, we were all friends who met up at events and phoned between one another. We a...

Re: Tylecodon bucholzianus aerial roots?

the aerial roots look a bit creepy, I haven't seen any on my plant.
