Re: Rebutia flavistyla problem

These plants have been grown from seed in 2017 and were going well. Despite not being fertilized they have flowered and have shown lush growth since being re-potted this spring.

Re: Aloe plicatilis

Grew that species from Doug Rowlandseed back in the 90’s. Grew the seedlings for a number of years before parts of my collection got sold for various reasons.

They are very attractive plants, hopefully that plants buds will flower soon, it looks awesome!

Re: At last .... flowers

It’s a light green or some times green/brown or lemon/green colour. I guess I could put some batteries in my old stamp inspection UV lamp and see what it looks like when it flowers. It’s often lighty scented as well. Similar to a lot of Echinocereus, it has spines in an array of reds, whites, blacks...

Re: 2020 Hildewinteras and a question
