Since I've (finally) launched my little webshop I'm overjoyed to say I've had a few orders, nothing to retire on but makes it very worthwhile, thanks very much to the BCSS members who've visited - makes it all worthwhile and allows me to justify my elaborate hobby to my family!
Still busy repotting (as ever), this summers weather seems to have generally been very conducive to good growth, not too hot, not too humid, not too cloudy
A few pics of what I've been up to in the 'tunnel.
Repotting Gymno asterium FB401 (I think a synonym of stellatum paucispinum)
And G. pseudoragonesii (not at all sure about the taxonomy of this one - but that's the name the seeds were collected under...)
Lots of Turb lophophoroides, seem to be much easier than they're often touted to be, and have been flowering nicely.
Various R. heliosa, such lovely plants, easy to see why they're perennial favourites.
Lobivia famatimensis FR459
Eriosyce taltalensis paucicostata - great colours! I've actually really struggled with these suddenly collapsing from black rot on the epidermis, and am fitting improved ventilation at the moment.
and Turb. polaskii (Turbinicarpus taxonomy is a little curious....)
Group shot of astrophytums
and the stunning flower of Eriosyce aerocarpa!
