Re: Which Huernia?

Looks like I had the wrong name on this one. It should be Sudanensis. It came from a reliable California source that normally is accurate with names but not with this one. Even the Phyto had the wrong name. It is the same plant that was described in the US Society's yearbook, Haseltonia a few years...

Re: Which Huernia?

The thing is that the Pilbeam book only shows one flower but if you look at Peter Bruyns book Stapeliads of Southern Africa and Madagscar, at Huernia thuretii for example there is a great range of different flower forms depending on where they are from. I wish I had that book! What species do you t...

Re: Cultivation snippets wanted for CactusWorld

Mine grow in winter if I leave them in the 20C propagator, but then the growths become etiolated...I just use the propagator for Stapeliad cuttings now. They root well in damp Seramis or some such.

Re: Which Huernia?

I have it too, and thought it should be H. sudanensis , but it does look very much like H. McCoyii I assume you've got mccoyi, because you kindly gave me a cutting, so maybe you could take pics of both and compare later? The tips of the flowers look exactly like the pic of mccoyi in Pilbeam's book:...

It does not work with plants, because of the drying out between waterings. Seedlings need to be kept pretty wet for it to have any benifit
The manufacturers say you can use it on any medium, or can just spray on the leaves. So I don't understand why it wouldn't work on plants...

Re: Canna Rhizotonic

I'm told cuttings root well with Rhizotonic. And one can water with it, of course. Has anybody tried it??

Which Huernia?

I bought this from Plant Life labelled H. sudanica. Which it appears doesn't exist. Doesn't look completely like H. sudanensis. I'm thinking H.mccoyi, now. Can anyone twist sideways sigh, and confirm/disagree, please? It's whiter than the photo and the lines are dark red.

I'm fine with CactusWorld, too. Though I quite like SuccaCactus...ha!
