Re: Euphorbia piscidermis

It is a fascinating plant and I would love to grow some, along with euphorbia gymnocalycioides. Shame they are so rare and even harder to find. Your ones look great and very happy.

Re: Euphorbia piscidermis

I kept the stump & it has 7 pups forming but they are slow. It was last summer that I chopped the top so it be a while before I can try growing them on their own roots.

Bringing this back up, I finally assembled it and put it in the garden, the risk of frost seems to be over so is it safe for the cacti to go in the garden yet?

2. Site it carefully. Being small, the temperature inside can swing wildly. Get a decent maximum/minimum thermometer (there are digital ones that have remote sensors so you can monitor it from inside) and make sure it's well ventilated in on hot days and closed up on cold nights. Thanks guys. I was...

I had the great fortune of being one of the few to see his collection last year during the pandemic. He was an amazing guy who was very knowledgeable, accommodating and kind. I was there for quite a few hours chatting with him and looking at his many plants. We were planning to see his collection ag...

Re: SanFran S&C Society in the 21st century: "Rethinking the Genus Sansevieria" on their YouTube channel!

This is why I stopped attending the live zoom lectures, because they are not live captioned. I have discussed with some people and there isn't the budget to pay for otter.io (Live captioning provider). The first zoom talk I attended did have live captions but that was with the ferrocactus talk and I...

Let me give you a tip, which I got from Bill Hildyard. I found this species tricky to grow until he advised me that it likes limestone. I added some to the compost and as top dressing, and my plant is now doing really well.
Thank you for this tip, I'll try and source some limestone :D
