Re: Small Opuntia ID’s please

Difficult. The basilaris ought to have a blue/green tinge to the epidermis grown in full sun if that helps.

Hi Phil I have the same plant and also wondered about the ex DogDyke and AH. I hadn’t a clue about DogDyke but Could AH be Alan Hill? It does flower well.

Re: First Cumulopuntia of the year

Ralph- Oddly this one doesn’t seem to develop much of the sooty mould - others do.
Christian - mine started when it was in a 6” half pot which was about as large as most of them reached until I got enough space to repot them all.....

Re: Echeveria lauii

Fero - Maybe it just needs to be older? My original plants are now around 8-9 years old and not very attractive as they sit on 2” stalks but they do produce 2-3 offsets a year.

Re: First Cumulopuntia of the year

They are around 10” square. I got them from ELK and have wished I had bought a lot more. That clone flowers from when it is quite small.
