Re: When to prick out succulent seedlings

The cante seedlings were totally jammed together by now so I've bitten the bullet and pricked them all out. All 286 modules in the trays are full!

Re: Aloe polyphylla germination

Another seed has germinated in water today and been transferred to a pot giving me four currently.

Aren't Aeoniums winter growers?
True, but it's been kept cold so might have gone semi-dormant? It isn't my plant but my friend's and we were looking at it today. I reckon it's flowering, he just thinks it's gearing up for a growth spurt!

Aeonium 'Emerald Ice' flowering?

As per the title - do you think this Aeonium 'Emerald Ice' is starting to send up a flowering spike or is it just waking from it's winter sleep?

Re: New purchases!

We'll temptation got the better of me again. Being at home poorly is bad for my bank balance! A friend and I ordered these from Korea. They came remarkably quickly and despite being rather dry, seem to have shipped well. IMG_20200211_154325.jpg IMG_20200211_154334.jpg IMG_20200211_154339.jpg IMG_202...

Re: Echinopsis seedling growth

That's interesting - I will measure them but mine definitely vary between crosses. That's either nature or nurture! Or both!
