Re: Cultivation of a Dioscorea Elephantipes.

Todays update. Slower growth than previous vines, but this one is much thicker than previous ones.

Re: A surprise in the greenhouse.

Re: Help with another stumper.

So my original id as a Saguaro fits? I still find the one long spine per group to be non-saguaro. No?

Help with another stumper.

I'm stumped with this one. When i acquired it 6 months ago I thought it was an over watered Saguaro. It's grown quickly which rules out Saguaro. Mu next thought was Stetsonia coryne an Argentine Toothpick. I've ruled that out due to color, shape and the fur growing on the top. What am I ? 20220810_1...

Re: Cultivation of a Dioscorea Elephantipes.

It is pretty cool with a slow growing plant going back a few yrs and seeing the progress.
