Re: When to put Aeoniums back outside?

Most, possibly all, Aeoniums will die or be damaged by frost, so the simple answer is after the last frost. Begs the question, how do you know which one is the last one? The best answer is historical for where in the country you live. In Sheffield, I wait till the end of May/early June, after checki...

Re: ID needed please Solved

I think I've identified the 2nd plant as a Sedum adolphii, can anyone confirm whether this correct? Looks like it. Also sometimes labelled Sedum nussbaumerianum.

Not as dark when outdoors in the summer, but much less green than the previous photo. velour.JPG The whole plant is much more open, with gaps between the heads, than last summer. I hope that as t...

Re: Its spring . . . . . Just about

April 2018 - Mammillarias

Surprisingly, it seems that Mammillaria hasn't been chosen previously as a topic, so that's the April competition. It could be spines
