Sardines

Post by Paul D » Fri May 07, 2021 1:01 pm

I had a lot of Aylostera albiareolata seedlings a year ago. After potting up a few dozen I just stuck all the waifs and strays into a seed tray. They seem to be happy enough, now jammed in together like a tin of sardines! I guess I will need to give them each a bit more room soon.

Are they all uniform body-wise? The flowers are certainly all the same!

Yes, peas in a pod. All identical.

And to think people buy cacti with pathetic paper flowers glued on.
