Re: C&V Cacti

I can only second that - plants received earlier this year exceeded my expectations. Very nicely grown and excellent value for their price. Well done you guys!

Resnova megaphylla - second wind

My resnova magaphylla plants, both mature and flowering plant as well as seedlings, came into leaf and flower very early this year. They were done and went into dormancy probably in early April. Now they are growing their leaves again. It never happened to me previously - has anybody else got simila...

For Drimia uniflora it is normal to flower at this time of the year. Or do you see grass like leaves appearing already?

Re: Autumn on the way?

It goes further: dioscorea hemicrypta, drimia uniflora and even albuca hallii. The last two are definitely my winter growers. So much so, that I have given a splash of water to few conos I have, which they reacted very well to. I hope that it will not backfire later on.

Re: Growing dioscorea elephantipes from seed

And you can wait for repotting until next year - they will be happier being bit squashed at that early stages of growth. It seems that there are as many way of growing plants as there ...

Re: Pelargonium flowers

Following the advice of a more experienced grower, I give my plant water all year round. In line with, if in leaf, water. It is enjoying that treatment and it is currently in leaf.
