Re: Illegal Cacti and the BCSS

I agree that Phil and esp's points need clarifying before this can really be implemented. Also what would happen with undescribed taxa and any sp.aff. that might be in the hobby? How would you know when they were 'discovered'. What if they were split from another species 10 years or more down the li...

Re: Definitely not a Turbinicarpus

I think you're right Terry. Has a Trichocereus (or hybrid of) look about it to me depending on whether you think they are a distinct group or not!

Re: Biggish, best value, fastest growing, hardy in enclosed corner

What effect are you after? Maybe a hardy palm or cordyline might fit the bill for decent sized and not spiky? I also grow a few nice trees on big pots on my deck; Gingko, Aralia, Catalpa, Liriodendron and a few others. They work nicely as a kind of jumbo bonsai!

Re: Red flower?

Could it just be that the red flower is the result of recessive genes. These seeds may well have come from a red flowered plant, but the red genes have just not expressed themselves? Looking at the photos of 'red' plants I think this isn't a single gene locus kind of colour mutation - I reckon it w...
