Big Picture Project -Announcement 2

Postby daiv » Thu Feb 28, 2008 10:52 pm

Ok, now that a couple other priority tasks have been completed, it is now time to move on to the next big project.

Some of you have already provided pictures for the project, but I may not have been able to get them all posted yet. I want to start over with the project and fill out the missing species more methodically.

Remember I am more or less using Anderson's classification as no system will please everyone:

(See: http://www.cactiguide.com/nomenclature/ )

As many notes as necessary can be added for forms, subspecies, etc. as well as notes on picture location, credits, and even return links per picture.

The goal is to have a picture for every species -young, mature, in flower, fruit, close-ups, overview shots, etc.

Remember, this is a lofty goal and may take years, but we gotta start somewhere! :wink:

Thanks in advance to eveyone who helps on this.

Did you want to start alphbetically going down the genus list, or were you thinking in terms of groups?(columnar, globuse, etc.)


EDIT: oops, just saw your Acanthacereus post, i guess it's alphabetically :D

Yes, I'd prefer to start a post for each, but if you have some ready, you can start the thread...

Man you guys are really comming up with a lot of pics! I've added tons already.

It might be easiest to e-mail me the pics or just post the link if they are on a website somewhere. That way you don't have to list out each one in a post and it should save some time.

I have several types of cactus if you would like I can post pics for you. And you are more than welcome to use them. I have 16 different types just in my house. lol That is not counting all the cactus I have in my yard and planters. lol I am a cactus freak.

Daiv, I notice there are no pictures of a Parodia rutilans in bloom. One of my finally had flowers this summer and you are welcome to photos of it. How should I submit them?

Hey thanks! E-mail is still the best method for my end.
