Maihuenia poeppigii

Post by Chris in Leeds »

Hi all I’m after a plant of Maihuenia poeppigii as I got a cutting last year and it didn’t do anything apart from shrivel up
Maybe it was too late in the year I don’t know

Mine is only tiny so I can’t help directly but I got mine from Ian Robinson. He’s not got a sales list up on his website but worth an email to see if he still has cuttings available.

Growing in Nottingham for the past 4 years and recently found my way to a Nottingham branch meeting. A few plants on a windowsill has very quickly turned into a greenhouse full!

Attempting to grow a range of turbinicarpus, coryphantha, escobaria and several other cactus genera. Tylecodons, pelargoniums and conophytums keep me occupied in the winter and an ever expanding number of gasteria live under the bench.

They need to be kept moist, and are best grown outside the greenhouse as an alpine which is what they are.

Cacti only collection mainly grown from seed.

I’ve often looked through his plant list but have been put off by the mad postage information. Do they ship plants or drive them around the country or both or neither? There’s a few I’d love to purchase.

I've just ordered a few plants by mail order from him (they are due to arrive this week), incl M poeppigii. You have to phone him up; his mobile is on the contact page. I paid by PayPal.

Graham is at shows around the SE as part of the Kent plant roadshow and has been to Lullingstone in the past. If you are ever near the nursery it’s worth a visit. As well as Cacti I’ve had some very interesting ferns from him in the past.

My plants arrived today; he posts on Mondays. Plants are good, but rather inexplicably they are sent in pots in very wet compost, wrapped in plastic bags so make sure you don't leave them hanging about. It is signed for delivery, and given the wet compost it is heavy! I also ordered a a couple of other tephro types, which unsurprisingly has resulted in me having several propagules!
