Re: Mammillaria boolii

Nice flowers. Not especially pretty without flowers. Start flowering quite small though. Can be touchy, probably want treating harder than I tend to, and more heat.

Lithops in variety

All Lithops helmutii. The first is the sort described as coke-bottle green.

Re: Lithops question

Skipping a year is OK. Usually it will pick up where it left off the next year. Getting flowers would be a good sign that all is well again.

Re: iPad pictures

I have a question to ask. If folk post a pic do they actually preview their post? If so - does this preview always reflect the way others see the pic? I preview, but this isn't an issue that affects my posts. My camera doesn't set the orientation flag and my posted images have always been processed...

I have read that cameras always store images with the "top" being at the "top" of the camera, hence always portrait, then set the orientation tag appropriately. This is what Apple devices do.

Re: iPad pictures

Apple always stores images in landscape mode, regardless if how they're taken. It then stores EXIF orientation data so it knows which way they should be displayed.
