Re: S, S, S - Part Two

Yes, my decision to dry them out and cool them off was aimed at arresting their damping off-like decline: I should never have sown the seed in August. I was too excited to wait until the sensible time when I'd've been able to look after them properly. This year's sowing are looking well so far, thou...

Re: Cintia knizei

These are cute little plants even when not in flower. On my plant, the flowers can arrive with very little warning from within the fluff - there are certainly no signs of flowers yet - see pic. Everything's behind this year so it remains to be seen whether they put in an appearance at their usual ti...

Re: Some potting challenges!

Some of these are from a deceased members collection and are growing in some very strange media. I have no choice but to try and convert them to mine! I don't know how they survived in many of the mixes. Having struggled to keep plants like this alive for long in the past, I came to the conclusion ...

Hi, they were both waiting for approval in the moderator queue. Normally, I'd delete one and approve the other but as you've worded them subtly differently I've kept them both and just merged the threads. :)

Re: Succulent ID

They outline the reasons that they doubt this commonly cultivated clone is C. arborescens ssp undulatifolia in a couple of paragraphs starting at the end of p96. Briefly, the leaves are too long and not wavy enough. That said, it certainly has distinctly arborescens characters: bluish leaves [cf gre...
