A very nice plant Keith, I hope you can catch a photo when the sun appears.
I think you were there when I bought it from Stuart at the 2017 Bromley show. It is still barely bigger than a twenty pence piece and I was not expecting to see it flower for quite some time.

Re: Dioscorea elephantipes

Further to my original post I am very happy to report that my D.elephantipes has started to send out a new vine despite my efforts to kill it off during the summer by giving it a tad more water than it desired. After cutting of the dead roots I replanted the rootless caudex in new compost and posit...

Re: Hello from Madrid!

Hi Patricia, welcome to the forum. You have a fine collection of Harworthias there, mine are all looking a but over grown and in need of thinning out / re potting.

Re: Dioscorea elephantipes

Re: Echinopsis subdenudata flower Solved

Hi, If you compare the plant photos year on year it looks as though the plant is now under nourished, the ribs are sunken, not pumped out as they were last year. This in turn means that the flower is not getting enough moisture and possibly food, to be able to produce a flower the same as last year...
