Re: Echinocereus triglochidiatus White Sands

Good luck with it. My E. triglochidiatus (not White Sands) took about 20 years from seed to its first flowering - but now it puts on a cracking display of flowers every year.

Re: Hoodia gordonii

Well done. Mine has also had several bursts of flowering this year. Thanks go to Mike for providing it to me!

I've grown Hoodia parviflora from seed this year, and hope I can keep that long enough to see it flower too.

I don't think so. Most Astrophytum flowers look pretty similar, with varying amounts of red.

Re: Sinningia leucotricha

Well, I didn't water it in this long dry spell we have had here - despite it being in a pot - and it seems fine, when even trees in the garden are losing leaves. It's fairly close to the house on the East side, which perhaps gives it a bit of extra protection from the winter.
