Re: Growing pachyphytum well

Im afraid I didn’t see the article, I have only a few copies of Cactusworld as I haven’t been a member for long and I have some missing too after moving house which doesn’t help. Do you know if it was written by the BCSS member Lisa from Scotland?

Re: Dioscoria Elephantipes

Thanks for the link Pattock, and the advice from others, looking at other people’s pictures mine has got a lot of catching up to do!

Re: Does anyone know what this is please?

Hi Phil I tried editing my post by adding a non mobile link, does that work?

Edit: I tried the link and it works on my mobile but when I request the desktop version it comes up blank.

That shows some green. The person that posted it said they are going to try and contact the person that gifted the plant to find out.

Does anyone know what this is please?

Looking for an ID for this one please, it’s someone on the BCSS Reddit page after an ID. I’ve also never seen one before, looks a weird colour

Re: 'Is my cactus illegal?" Online Talk

“It isn't an air freshener.” LOL

I read this as:

Re: Dioscoria Elephantipes

Thank you all and thanks for the link Steven, I did have a quick look on here for Dioscoria but didn’t see that thread. It’s not surprising that it’s out of sync because it has been moved around quite a bit the last couple of years. I’m not too fussed about getting it bigger as I don’t have much roo...

Growing pachyphytum well

Does anyone on here grow pachyphytum well and know how to encourage leaves to be rounder? Would more regular watering, less fertiliser and more light improve it or something else? Some of mine are a bit etiolated and I don’t know if it’s from too much fertiliser, watering at the wrong time of year, ...
