Re: Confusion identifying Cacti!

I don't have many Stenocactus in my greenhouse amongst the many Cochemiea, but I would call most of them Stenocactus sp. except those ones still, after all these years, with beautiful labels written by Jane (the best label writer ever) Riley. :wink:

Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please

They both look like the same hybrid to me.
Uhlig did lots of crosses between O. fragilis (small pads) and Opuntia phaeacantha (and other large-padded opuntias) to produce a range of small padded plants with large flowers. A confusing group of plants in my opinion - but then I am more of a purist!

Re: Helping seedlings

I've just started potting this year's cactus seedlings on, which is another way to help them - they seem to grow faster once placed into "normal conditions". Anyone else started yet? I'm a little bit behind this year! Reminder to Me - I must remember to sow this year's seeds soon! :duh: :bangh:

Re: Another first

Tunilla sp., like all of the others. :twisted: Yes, Ralph, this clone has been around in many collections in SE England at least, often labelled Opuntia microspherica, Airampoa microspherica, Tephrocactus microsphaericus, etc. The Tephrocactus on this clone/label dates back to the 70s when most big...

Re: Another first

Nice flower, Ralph. Now a Tunilla or Airampoa if you prefer.
