Re: puna clavaroides

That plant is stunning, I especially like the fact that the growth all looks regular and no misshapen joints. I haven't found any of my pterocactus to scorch but they certainly drop joints with no encouragment. They root where ever they fall, whilst doing some repotting yesterday I found one squeeze...

Re: In your opinion, which are the 3 worst pests in succulents?

I don't feel that root mealies are getting enough hate with the poll. At least with normal mealies you can see the blighters and attack them directly. Despite a rigorous repotting and deinfesting last year. I am still finding some as I am starting to repot some this spring.

Re: Own soil mix for Cacti and Succulents

Just to add to the peat/sand mentioned above, that is the mix I grow my venus flytraps in and they love it being bog plants :grin:

My cactus/succulent mix is similar to most peoples, JI mixed with cat litter.

Re: Ceriod Cactus ID, please.

I would hazard a guess that the original yellow growth is a mineral deficiency and since being in your care that has been rectified through either repotting or watering. Personally I think that the yellow area detracts from the plant overall. If it was mine I would probably remove that stem low down...

Re: Echeveria Agavoides..the real deal or marketing gimmick?

I had thought that the name "romeo" was a valid one also. It is the proper name for "taurus", which seems to have been applied by a wholesaler at some point.

Re: Born to Die- Agave

This is always frustrating, I have two variegated Mammillaria giselae from the same batch of seed. One is evenly variegated and growing very nicely but the other is in blocks. The second seems to be being overcome by the variegation as it grows. At least cacti can be grafted though. Fingers crossed ...
