Dorstenia gigas

My Dorstenia gigas (originally from Tina) seems to be doing well in my new greenhouse - this year it has flowered for the first time. I wonder if it will shoot the seeds into other pots, like D. hildebrandtii? The latter can be a bit of a weed...

Re: Overwatering Looking Like Underwatering?

Take some more cuttings, and make sure they have a green core (if not, cut nearer the ends of the branches). Crassulas can die off at the roots, but leaving the ends of the stems alive - indeed, if they start throwing aerial roots, it's a good indication this has happened. The good news is that this...

Re: My first Rebutia flower

My true Rebutias started a couple of weeks ago, then some A. fiebrigii and A. einsteinii clones a week ago, and now I'm getting A. kupperiana, flavistyla (including an interesting yellow flowered one) and some A. pygmaeas. Must be all the light and fresh air up here! :grin:

Re: Just about ready to flower

I'm pretty sure your plant is Aloe variegata, not A. 'Doran Black'. Still a nice plant though.

Re: Crassula pyramadilis

There are definitely other Crassulas which do die after flowering, however. Crassula alpestris is one (for me, at least), and Crassula columnaris, Crassula barbata are others. If you are lucky they might offest before flowering. It's a shame, as the latter two are real gems.

Re: Blossfeldia

I've got some self sown seedlings, from a couple I had in the same pot. They are exceedingly slow.

Re: dioscorea elephantipes

Yep. The bigger the pot you give, potentially the faster it will grow...

Re: Crassula pyramadilis

My plant doesn't die after flowering, it just throws side branches. On the other hand, it is a much bigger, much branched plant. In fact, I have several plants of this under different names (e.g. C. archeri), some of which are more robust than others.
