Karl; we could just call them Echinocactus i...

Re: My first Sclerocactus

It is uncinatus for sure, but Glandulicactus under the latest chemical and genetic studies clearly have no relationship with Sclerocactus, which could explain what Diane said about them being easier to go, the latest thinking is they could just be fancy Ferocactus or should that be Leuchtenbergia.

I finally got my father to drive me down there from Lancashire in our old Austin A35 one day in the school summer holiday, I spent the whole afternoon trying to work out what to spend my pocket money on, while my father spent the whole time talking to the ow...

Re: Columns

Beautiful Eulychnia Juster, my saint-pieana is only a 4yr seedling, but starting to look the part. Interesting thread because I now realize how few photos of my columns I have taken compared to the smaller cacti when they are flowering, so this summer I must get the camera out and put that right, bu...

Re: Leave fruit on prickly pear cactus? Solved

As said above, normally it is best to strip down a pad cutting so it can root , but in your case they may already have roots, so knock them out of the pot and plant the three in individual pots whether they have roots or not, if they do have roots you can leave the fruit on no problem.
