May 2020 - Virtual Table Show

Post by Jim_Mercer » Sat May 02, 2020 4:35 pm

As we now have a Virtual National Show for your prized specimens this months photo competition is for your smaller plants. Just one class in this show, one plant (cactus or succulent) in a pot not exceeding 10cm. Whole plant must be visible so no flower macros

I'll put up my Matucana aureiflora - checked the pot 9.8cm
Yes - I know it was posted elsewhere too - but the rules allow this surely

Currently being wooed by Haworthia, and attempting hybridisation.

Euphorbia piscidermis, very odd & slow plant

blossfeldia liliputana, grown from seed about 2007/6.
One plant is single but this one was multi headed from a young age

Tricky to.find things looking half decent in less than 10cm pots! Most of mine are in 12cm or larger!

Yes restricted pot size is a nightmare, its often 18cm & my favourite pans are 20cm.
