Re: Tavaresia grandiflora

They seem to have a death wish, Mike! I had a lovely clump until a couple of years ago, that decided to dry up on me, but I managed to root a couple of stems in cat litter, which (fingers crossed) seem to be OK at the moment. They can be a bit reluctant to root, but did do so in cat litter. Plenty o...

Re: Ceraria pygmaea with ODD growth

Could it have been grafted? I believe that Ceraria can be grafted onto portulacaria, but you may know if you grew it yourself.

Re: Aeonium sunburst variegata cristate - what to do?

You can take a few cuttings from it, they root quite easily in a gritty mix, and restart new plants. It sometimes throws off normal rosettes too, which can also be propagated.

I agree with Topsy- it looks typical of cold damage.

Re: Tylecodon bucholzianus aerial roots?

Yes, you can pot those rooting stems up. Maybe a smidgen of water to get them going. It's such a brittle plant, that it's inevitable that stems break off. I have a 30 year old clump that often gives me volunteer propagations, but they are exceedingly slow!

Re: Lambs’ “Illustrated Reference”

At the end of each volume, there is an index of genera, indicating which volume they are in, but not down to species level.

Re: A Curiosity

I saw these in a garden centre, in several different colours, they are sprayed but I have no idea how they do it.

Re: Edithcolea grandis

Maybe a hanging pot rather than a basket would be the best solution. I believe Tom Jenkins succeeded flowering his Edithcolea in a hanging pot/basket. It's something I intend to do this summer, I have a smallish plant bought last year and put it on a high shelf, which retained its wonderful copper c...
