Re: Which Huernia?

McCoyi looks most likely but I wouldn't rule out sudanensis.

Re: Canna Rhizotonic

So rootgrow is beneficial for cuttings? I always have a number of Stapeliad cuttings from winter casualties.

Re: Cultivation snippets wanted for CactusWorld

If you can keep the temperature up they may well grow but winter is the most vulnerable time and I leave well alone. Also light levels aren't great and I would prefer them to rest.

Re: Cultivation snippets wanted for CactusWorld

Don't repot Stapeliads until they have started growing in spring.

Re: Just repotted Solved

Incidentally, I mean repotting cacti Aloes, Agaves etc. If it were Stapeliads I wouldn't touch them until they have started growing in spring.

Re: Just repotted Solved

First repot in 9 years. Hopefully it won't be the kiss of death.

Re: Just repotted Solved

Benign neglect and a clay pot for texensis has worked so far.

Obegonia is on the same watering regime as Ariocarpus, Pelecyphora, Aztekium etc.

Re: Cultivation snippets wanted for CactusWorld

Talking of small flies here's a green tip to deal with them.

Get a carnivorous plant ( mine is Drosera binata) and move it where you need it, usually near pots of seedlings and it will hoover up all the flies. It doesn't need reptting, just stands in rainwater all the time.
