Re: Help with my Astrophytum Capricorn

Looks like some roots are starting. I'd pot it an leave it dry. My soil mix is loose and roots usually grow well. After a month or so, you can give it a push and see if it is firm, then water. Or if you are curious, you can stand it in something loose and porous and see for yourself what sort of roo...

Re: Anybody recognise this Copiapoa Solved

Re: Any ideas Solved

The obvious candidates would be M. rekoi and M. zeilmanniana. How about M. limonensis? How big are they, relatively? And how old?

Re: Anybody good with Notocactus?

Bob, one of us is a genius, possibly both! I had thought submammulosus for the middle one and roseoluteus for the five or so that are all the same. The one you call buiningii certainly looks distinctive, even more so in the flesh, a very clear lime green, but I had no idea on a name. I think the two...

Anybody good with Notocactus?

I have a pot of no-name seedlings. A few are obviously the same but I don't know what they are. I can't even tell the adults apart!
