May 2019 - Adromischus

Post by SpikyMike » Sun May 05, 2019 5:16 pm

Being new to the society and collecting - so far my new family of plants have all been cacti. But I’ve started with a few Adromischus species. Love their form. So I’d like to chose Adromischus as the May 2019 Photo competition. Happy snapping!

The grey/purple one? Is one of the 'special' clones of A. cooperi.

Hi All. Apols for not choosing a winner for May 2019 until today. Lovely to see these pics of a genus in exploring. All lovely plants and photos. Particularly likes Diane’s batch of photos - an inspiration to grow more of this genus.

But I’ve decided to anoint Jim_M with his wonderful close up. Love the detail of the leaf edges and the shallow depth of field.

Over to you to select a topic Jim!
