not Castellanosia caineana!

Post by Roberto A » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:10 am

Hi.
I have grown this cereoid from Rowland's seeds in 2002; I bought them as Castellanosia (now Browningia) caineana... but it obviously is not that plant... even if on the web you can find pictures of very similar small plants named that way... so, may be the same error was done more than one time...
Any comment?
Thank you.

Sorry, cannot answer your query, but it's an amazing plant and a beautiful flower. Assume you don't live in the U.K.?!

Hi Juster.
No, living in southern Sardegna island (Italy).
Yes, the plant is a beautiful one.... but I am not so happy to have grown it for years, just hoping it would "turn" in what it should be....
