Re: what is this big lump

The label is just one of my own unique numbering system. Its waiting to get a proper name on it. Currently its numbered in the Echeverias which it is clearly not. I got it from a market stall for not a lot.

Re: April 2021 - Resurrection

I bought this mesem, Scopelongena verruculata, early 2018. I potted into a round clay pot with a 50%mix of compost and grit. For almost three year it just sat doing nothing, limp and no new growth and I was tempted to get rid of it :sad: . In Early January this year I potted it into what you see. It...

Re: March 2021 - Neglected, forlorn

Here's 2 very different Veltheimia plants I recovered from under the staging complete with a variety of critters.
