And this beauty had flowered. 12 flowers in total. That's 14 this season and the promise of more to come.
Apologies for the absence of my more photographic style, but this photo of a tall plant on the tallest shelf in the GH required teetering on a step ladder. S&H was in my mind, but a full GH was not an easy place to work.
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.
