Re: Is this a bad idea

Never tried it on cactus, but it caused some distorted growth on the plants I tried it on. It was over 40 years ago, so I don't remember what I used it on. I've seen it advertised to make cactus offset, recently.

Re: Instagram accounts

I started on "Insta" (am I cool yet?) a while back. As far as I know I'm @cactusthehut. I post pictures because I can do it from my phone. I'm pretty neutral on it and generally negative on social media in general. It's different, but it doesn't have the same interactive dialog we get here.

Two of my A. fissuratus made a liar of me today. They go from felt to flower in no time.

Re: Am I Mammillaria?

"Regular" M. pringlii have golden spines. I've never seen one this pale. I'd buy one if I'm saw one. Nice plant!

Re: Mammillaria

Re: 8 years ago...
