February 2020: Any colour but green

Post by Roatavator » Sun Feb 02, 2020 4:33 pm

I’ve put the thinking cap on, hopefully you’ll like this one.
I’m looking for any cactus or succulent plant body which isn’t green. No flowers please, that would be too easy! Plants should be (or in the case of ex-plants, have been) in your collection. And I’ll rule out anyone who’s been handy with a paintbrush.
Here’s an example of the sort of thing I mean.

Interesting idea, I thought it would be too difficult, then I remembered Echeveria perle von nurnberg

and Dudleya brittonii

Here all I could find,
Melocactus azureus- can't wait for this to get larger, its been a bit slow but finally seems to have settled & needs a repot.

Uebelmannia pectinifera- my odd coloured plant I have had this since 2009 & its is s l o w.

Remarkable plants Tina. Even the last one (which I kinda hate because 5 out of 6 died on me :) :( )...
