Re: Euphorbia ankarensis watering and flowering

Thanks Tina, yes fuzzy leaves. If I remember correctly I saw ankarensis predominantly growing in shaded wooded areas in leaf litter and pachypodioides on the baking rocky tsingy outcrops, but my memory isn't always that great.

Re: Euphorbia ankarensis watering and flowering

I'd bring it indoors and grow it on a sunny window sill without a winter break. There's a few succulents that take so long to come back into leaf after a winter break that they've hardly made much growth before the next winter. Some of the leafy Euphorbias seem to fit into that category and they se...

Re: Euphorbia ankarensis watering and flowering

Nick I water this plant "as usual" i.e. from April to September, but it does flower at a different time to when it's in leaf, and it does need a high winter temperature (I keep it at 15C). Perhaps you were watering it so sparingly, it was not convinced the rainy season had really come? Ralph Thanks...

Euphorbia ankarensis watering and flowering

I don't grow Euphorbias but I do like to grow plants that I've seen in habitat so after a trip to Ankarana a couple of years ago I sourced a small Euphorbia ankarensis amongst other plants. Last year it leafed out in the spring and grew all summer. I watered it when dry and left it dry all winter. E...

I am now feeling guilty, Nick, that I have this through your generosity and you have lost yours.

That's OK, maybe I'll just have to go back and get some more. :grin:

Hi Nick, Is yours in worse condition?
Yes, it's dead :grin:

It dried up like yours from the bottom but completely so. I cut the top off and tried to root it but it rotted.

Re: Pachypodium mikea???

The only seedling I kept from this seed dried up and died over the winter, anyone got a spare?

Lobivia schieliana?
I thought L.schieliana as well when I first looked. I have a pale spined form but I also have a Ralf Hillmann clone that is similar to the OP's plant.

Re: Newbie question

For example, for Ralf Hillmann's plants, a number by itself, e.g. RH1234, is probably seed raised,but a number followed by /n indicates a vegetative propagation of the nth particular clone of the original collection, e.g. RH1234/3. Sounds useful. Does 'nth particular clone' mean generations from se...
