Re: Antimima dualis query

Thanks all. The Vivant passerelle link is very useful and I'm sure I will make frequent use of it. I have watered most of my conos now but pageae doesn't appear to be ready yet. Although I keep them in the shade in the summer, the intense heat this year has led to the leaves drying out earlier than ...

Antimima dualis query

I've successfully grown 6 A. dualis plants from BCSS seed I sowed in March this year. I believe they might be winter growers but can't find confirmation of this in any of my books or on the internet. Can anyone confirm this please?

Re: Lithops question

Thanks Ian, that is reassuring. I'll hope for some flowers - I didn't get any last year from this plant.

Lithops question

I have a specimen of Lithops julii fulleri that is behaving very oddly this year. Last year was a bit strange too as I only watered it twice during the whole of the summer, on 31 May and 17 July. During the winter it showed no sign of new leaves appearing and by mid July it had shrunk but there was ...

Cactus for identification please

I picked this cactus up at the Stoke meeting on Tuesday. No-one there could positively identify it and neither can I. The clump is about four inches across. Can anyone help please?
