Re: Aloe castillioniae

The last time I saw them for sale, they were nice clustering plants like the one shown here but limited to one per person! It's not very well-known and not easy to find though doesn't seem to need extra winter heat like so many other Madagascan plants.

Re: Mystery plant

Yes, thoroughly agree with David, it grows on aluminium staging, concrete flooring, anywhere a leaf drops. It's just about indestructible, unaffected by glyphosate sprayed under the staging. Pull a plant out without too much care and it sheds leaves everywhere, the leaves blend in well with top dres...

Re: Acanthocalycium glaucum

It's not particularly well-known and I think it's quite an underrated plant. There's a sort of Copiapoa-ish look to it when not in flower. It would make a good plant for the identification part of the Judges Weekend.

Re: Echinopsis Subdenudata

The decision with a plant looking this good, but only for a day, is what to do with it. It either comes indoors when it can be seen in flower for the rest of the day or it stays in the greenhouse where it is only seen for a short time unless you spend all day in the greenhouse. The photo captures it...

Re: Some Gymnocalyciums

I was just thinking how many pieces your Crassula Mesembryanthemopsis could be cut into! Rather nice and hiding in the background.

Re: Identification

The photo looks like one of the Lambs colour photos they used to print on their John Bull Printing Kit in Worthing. I always wondered how they did it.

Re: Confusion identifying Cacti!

The thread on Mamm Haudeana a few days ago showed a whole mass of Mamms that had (in one person's opinion) been transferred to Cochemieas. I'd suggest we ignore it and it'll go away. Don't change labels.

Re: Confusion identifying Cacti!

Getting back to Stenocactus, there's lots of names around for just a few different species. I've not seen any two in Mexico that look alike, the number of ribs varies, the flower colour varies and the spine length varies and, apart from maybe three distinct species, the rest could easily all be call...
