Ornithogalum juncifolium

North Touwsberg. 2" pot of tiny delights but as age and decrepitude take hold I think I need plants I can actually see.

Crassula 'Hummel's Sunset'.

Amazing what a bit of sunshine can do. Just a pity that the strong light cannot curb it's tendency to legginess.

Re: Lophophora red/brown lesions

Normally with stuff like this I dig it out and if it is not too deep it will scab over and recover. I might be imagining this but I think our plants sometimes forget to defend themselves, and really damaging them kickstarts the healing process.

The more the merrier Matz.
Derek the plant is now drying out. It seems to be able to survive as a dry stick through summer till I water it in the autumn.

Re: Tylecodon ventricosa DT6603 Graaffreinet

Did I mention the flowers and stem have sticky glandular hairs all over the surface.

The flowers brushed against an Epithelantha.

That is nice, my Echinocereus all seem to be shades of red or purple.

Tylecodon ventricosa DT6603 Graaffreinet

A right mess of a plant for most of the year, then it is forgiven when it flowers. Nice red tracery on the blooms.

Thelocephala napina duripulpa

Nice flower and a label from a time when there was not so much of a problem involving habitat robbing.
