Re: 2x Turbinicarpus flowers

Always lovely to see these little plants burst into bloom. Several of my Turbs have pushed out buds since last week's rains, and I expect to see flowers this weekend. Jan, your posts are always a breath of fresh air, it is great to hear how you cultivate your plants under the open skys, that middle...

Re: couple of new 'ODD' uns

I got to say Tina, these plants are not my cup of tea but wish you luck getting them growing again and I look forward to seeing updates on their progress.

Re: Sulcorebutia/Rebutia cylindrica HS44A

Hi Colin. The ruler's NOT white plastic but beige, or at least that's the colour my wife tells me it is. :wink: Does that help at all? That rather throws a spanner in the works, as I was referencing the ruler for a white balance, like I said best to include a known colour patch be it neutral grey or...

Re: Sulcorebutia/Rebutia cylindrica HS44A

So what d'you mean by "almost white"? Is there a bit of pink in there or wot? The ruler is at home but I don't think that's straight white, but I will check later if I can remember. Yes Colin, a very slight bias to red though a picture against a neutral background and a known white sample or the go...

Re: Sulcorebutia/Rebutia cylindrica HS44A

The next poll should be where to cut it? How much to leave for future growth..... Nice to see white flowers on a Rebutia sp. Hi Chris, I've confessed before to my colour vision impairment (red-green colour blind), hence this question: is this flower definitely pure white? I can see a feint pinkish ...

Re: succulent bonsai

............... Anyone tried to bonsai any cacti? I haven't personally. Colin, I have a greenhouse of accidentally 'Bonsai'd' cacti, something to do with my father's frugal watering regime and the concrete like nature of ten year old peat compost but I don't think that answers your question. I shou...

I am working away next week so my copy is staying sealed for now, it will help to keep me out of trouble during those long nights in hotel bars.

Re: Unnamed Stapeliad

Hi all thank you for your thoughts, it would appear that H. macrocarpa is what should be on the label. Tony thank you for the historical note, as the collection has not been added to this century, I expect it would have been a plant in circulation during the late 80's or 90's so I can discount any r...
