Re: First time lithops grower question

Thanks for replies; lithops were in a South-west window but may have inadvertently been shaded by another plant.

First time lithops grower question

Hello! I have to apologise for the number of queries I've asked on the forums recently - it's only my second year growing and although I've learnt a lot, there's still so much I don't know. I was given this pair of Lithops dorotheae a few months ago. They were a lot less tall when I got them, and th...

Re: Top dressing for succulents

I know it's very traditional to use top dressing, and it definitely can make a visual statement (I know people who use neon pink and black aquatic stones which looks super unique - and I've personally used tiny tan and white aquatic pebbles against teal plants which looks amazing), but I've moved aw...

Re: Echeveria agavoides flowering

Hi Brian,

Thanks for your help. I was under the impression that springtime was the correct season for Echeveria flowers - is that not right?

40 degrees? Do they need such high temperatures?

Echeveria agavoides flowering

Hello all, My Echeveria agavoides is beginning to flower extremely early, well before my watering routine starts up again around March. Should I provide water to the plant now if it's already flowering, or wait until March as planned? Additionally, why might it be flowering at this time of year? It'...

Re: Any Aeonium buffs out there?

Jumping on this topic to ask about my Aeonium sunburst. I've had it since it was tiny and it's quadrupled in size since I got it. The leaves are healthy and there's plenty of colour on them, but the stalk is weak and is unable to support the leaves without flopping over. Is there anything I can do t...

IKEA Vaxer grow lights

Hello, I live in Scotland where we don't get a lot of light this time of year. I'm trying to maintain my indoor collection of succulents and cacti over this season and an starting to notice a little etiolation in some plants. Most are doing fine in a south facing window over winter, but others could...

Re: Cactus seed payment

I didn't know this would become such a hot topic. I resent some of the suggestions and ideas put forward here, and the notion maybe I shouldn't be growing plants (?). I literally just enquired about a complementary way in which to pay for seeds, and when it was explained why this would be difficult ...

Re: Cactus seed payment

Reading the replies with interest. Although I live in Glasgow and I do have a post office nearby, the issue is that I work hours that do not complement the opening hours of my local post office. I'm off for the holiday period at the moment and the post office is shut for the duration (!). I'll be ab...
