Re: Are these thrips in cactus seedlings soil?

Hi 🙂 That look like springtails and if so, shouldn’t be a problem. Look here; https://www.cactiguide.com/forum/viewto ... ls#p387011 And you can also search for springtails here on the forum.

Re: Mrs.Green windowsills-growing cacti against the odds (links on page 9)

The flowers opened and what a display for such a small plant 🙂 Not much else have happened in the flowering department this summer or should we rather say monsun? I begin to wonder if I am wrong about which country I live in.. Apart from one week with very high temperatures, it have rained, rained a...

Re: My GreenHouse Build.

Exuberance. I never had a space large enough to accommodate a greenhouse. So When I moved out here to Indio I had space and built the greenhouse. Yes its hot, yes I probably could have gotten away with building a Roof and Shade Cloth like many growers do. I was going to remove half the side panels ...

‘Promiscuous’ plants or how many fathers can be involved

A cat or a dog (or a woman for that matter) can have more than one father for the same litter. Which makes sense since genetical variation is an advantage. Which made me wonder , how many fathers can be involved in one ‘litter’ ( seedcapsule) when it comes to plants? Factors as how long the flowers ...

Re: Hana's cacti

It is rain today. I could not see any special happenings in the winter greenhouse but I took two photos in this morning. They are young Astrophytum species. Good morning Hanazono :) Very nice plants. Do they have the same parents, all of them? Or rather do the plants in picture nr.1 have the exact ...

Re: Conophytum nobile?

I haven't read this book, but I wonder if it's not a misspelling of Conophytum no ta bile N.E.Br. 1930.It is actually a synonym of Conophytum frutescens Schwantes 1927. Yes, there is no C. nobile. Thank you very much Eduart :) I have looked up C.notabile/frutescens and sees that this species seems ...

Re: Mammilaria?

Thank you Anttisepp, Mikethecactusguy and Tom in Tucson 🙂. I am a bit curious about why it was given the name mammilaris? From my point of wiev, the tubercles aren’t more nipplelike than a whole lot of others in the same genus? I think that Carl Linnaeus 1st named it Cactus mammillaris . Haworth 1s...

Conophytum nobile?

In Anthony Huxley’s book ‘Houseplants, cacti and succulents’ from the late ‘60’s(?) there is a picture of a plant named Conophytum nobile. Problem is I can’t find the plant on the net, it doesn’t seem to be a valid name or a synomym either. Anyone who knows which plant this is and the current name?

Re: A surprise in the greenhouse.

Great 😃 It shows that one shouldn’t give up on plants as long as there is hope. I like your enthusiasm over the ‘awakening’ too, even though you have lots of plants and arent a beginner.

Re: What is more important?

3; Yes..from my experience , learned the hard way.. of course you can get plants with no unwanted ‘pets’ coming along but if the plants do have hitchhikers, it’s a lot easier to treat the affected plants than your entire collection. How far away? That’s an interesting question I have wondered about ...

Re: Hana's cacti

A steel fence stands on the south side of large greenhouse, which height is 1.8 m. I planted Euryops Pectinatus along the fence as the decoration of greenhouse some years ago. The instruction said the plant would reach to 1m height. The photo is the current situation. The height is more than 2m. Th...

Re: Days of my cacti lives - in pictures

That was a bit colder than I expected. But I would guess the plants would have a nice and thick duvey of snow on then? Such low temperatures if it were black frost would have killed them? No, if you ask about native species. Snow here often melts to the ground during winters. But cacti get dehydrat...
