Re: keeping plants cool the computer way

For mites and thrips, I suspect you would need such a fine mesh over the intake that it would seriously impede the airflow. Looks like the Econet 1515 screen mesh was designed for you! Though I don't know if you will be able to buy it in less than wholesale quantities. In a city you would have to c...

Re: keeping plants cool the computer way

My fans are circulation fans, positioned fairly high up, in the hope that this will also pull cooler air in from outside. as there are paired ridge vents along the length of the roof. Point taken that intake fans could well be rather more effective. In fact, the effects and effectiveness of fans ar...

Pattock, is Stapeliads.net operational or has it died a death?
I get the impression it has not been updated in any way for many years. I have wondered what would happen if I sent them a slightly better photo of Ceropegia crassifolia.

My experience is the opposite of Aiko's - in my greenhouse, I have 800W of fans which shift a considerable amount of air, and still do not keep the place as cool as I would like on sunny days, even with all the windows and doors wide open.
Intake fans or circulation fans?

Remarkably like H. plowesii!
It is very much like. Perhaps more like it than Huernia humilis, presumably a hybrid with Huernia plowesii. Stapeliads.net has this quote for Huernia plowesii:
The anulus opening is pentagonal . Not so in H. humilis.
Cute, whatever the name is.

Re: Huernia pendula PVB4004

I do love a bit of purple.

As it was collected by Bruyns, aren't you obliged to call it Ceropegia pendula (E.A.Bruce) Bruyns? :lol:

Re: June 2020 - GotM - Aeonium

The name Aeonium (originally Æonium ) derives from the ancient Greek word αἰώνιον (aionion) meaning a thing "lasting for an Age", "perpetual" or "eternal". This is from the same word αἰών (aion) as our English word aeon, meaning an era, age, duration of the world, eternity or an immeasurable time. h...
