Re: CactusWorld

I'll be honest, despite having watched HIGNFY since forever I always assumed that publications on it were so ludicrous as to not actually be real. It wasn't until I saw Cactusworld that all those years of obscure publications were actually real. I think part the problem is as someone pointed out ear...

Re: What's wrong with my Melocactus?

Even if it's lost its roots it's a complete myth that Melocactus can't regrow them once they have their cephalium, I've done it multiple times, so all is not lost either way. You can repot it into Tesco non-clumping cat litter now and just ever so slightly wet the cat litter once a month or so. That...

Re: Micranthocereus hofackerianus 15month old

I'm not sure how old they'd have to be to reach 3cm diameter, mine are coming up for 10 years old and still barely breaking a centimeter.

This is fairly typical growth for them, fast growing, beautiful flowers, and they flower pretty much all year around on and off too.

Re: New fora? Forums?

They haven't realy been publicised to the target audience yet too many other things to do, I set them up now in preparation of things to come. Bill On this note, what happened to the site redesign? I thought the BCSS was paying an external organisation hard money to rebuild the BCSS' web presence, ...

Re: Arrojadoa ID

I think you are right James but perhaps for the wrong reason! I spent some time this morning searching my records and came up with original seedlist from 2009 plus the empty packets. I ordered Arrojadoa dinae v eriocaulis from the list. The packet said Arrojado eriocaulis MMd980. It obviously isn't...

Re: Yucatan, Mexico

Hi Ray, thanks for the reply. You say mainly cereoids like they're disappointing, they're always my favourites :grin:

Yeah we're on Cozumel island for the first week, then Playa Del Carmen the second week. I'll keep an eye out but not expect too much then.

Re: Warning.

Yeah but the point was you can take a notebook with you, no need to leave it in the car.

Re: Warning.

You don't need to tell me Dave, I go diving and so definitely can't take my iPad, land camera, and GPS underwater with me :lol: If I need to record anything, i.e. doing a SeaSearch survey for the MCS I do so on a waterproof slate and write it up when I get back. I'd suggest if you're not taking the ...

Yucatan, Mexico

Any cactus species here or in Cozumel? Visiting for 2 weeks in August, and whilst so far I've done a reasonably good job of happening upon reef diving destinations that also happen to have some great cactus habitat or nurseries/gardens hence mixing two of my favourite things in nature such as in St ...

Re: PlanetoHuerto

Remember you always have protection from your bank against fraud so internet shopping does not have to be so scary anymore. Only if it wasn't your fault and you took sensible precautions. Don't be surprised if a bank quite legitimately refuses to refund your money if you got a malware warning sign ...
