Re: Hana's cacti

A standard asterias has 8 ribs. Seedings and young plants have symmetrical body shapes. It is possibly mixed other Astrophytum gene if a seedling had more than 8 ribs. On ther other hand, some of old asterias are added number of ribs and turned to multi-ribs asterias. Photo 1: Young asterias with 8...

The cactus garden in Bendigo

Anyone knows is this place still exists and the cacti still there? I couldn’t find anything about the garden later than 2012.

Thank you very much all of you 😊 Anttisepp; Beautiful plant and great spines! The poor spination on my specimen can’t be blaimed on me, I have only had it for a couple of weeks.

Re: Bryan's Plants

As usual really nice quality photos, the last drosera definitely takes it with that lovely bud and flowering spectacle. A treat to show us some other native plants going off too as some do tire of cactus flowers eventually Thanks RorBurg56! Hopefully can see few more species of terrestrial orchids ...

Re: Hardgrown or not- how do you prefer your cacti/succulents?

Well..I cant keep ducking this thread much longer. The reason for doing so..who likes to admit they have been plain stupid.. :P :oops: I have been growing ‘ordinary’ houseplants for decades, so I should have understood all by myself that even cacti needs enough water to thrive.. #-o On top of that I...

Re: CactiGuide.com Big Picture Project

Those flowering cacti really are a treat. But when I look at the pictures in the lexicon, I usually want to compare my plant with other plants to find out its name. Usually I have some small little thingy, not such a fully grown beauty. With those pictures I am never able find out, if my ugly duckl...

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

The A.myriostigmas are still attached to the substrate with no alarming ‘wiggliness’ so far. Even with two good waterings since I repotted them. Hopefully they stay this way and survive. The flower bud on one of them is very slowly growing, if we could get a bit of sun and higher temperatures than 8...

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

That Fero looks in survival mode. I hope it plumps up soon. You kept it on moist substrate for 3 weeks? How bold. :) Hi Ohugal 🙂 I think you are right, it is in survival mode. For some reason pics I post here are less clear than they are on my tablet, maybee the downsizing plays a role? There are i...

Re: Hana's cacti

G'morning Mrs. Green, Do they have the same parents, all of them? Or rather do the plants in picture nr.1 have the exact same parents? In other words, are they true siblings? All cacti on the photo No. 1 are rooted off-sets. My freind gave me seeds and so I do not know the history of seeds. Since t...

Re: ‘Promiscuous’ plants or how many fathers can be involved

DaveW; Thank you very much for the interesting links 🙂 Nachtcrab; yes I think it’s interesting on several levels. Both from the ‘what’s possible’ level and when it comes to seed ‘production’ in captivity. I still wonder about ( have touched the subject before) how certain one can be of the origin of...

Re: Good cacti videos?

Thank you Jerrytheplather 🙂 Interesting and a bit surreal to look at the snow covered cacti, yes I do know it’s ‘possible’ but deep down, I feel that cacti and snow doesn’t match . The seed pods on the Opuntia imbricata; really beautiful!

..and a Mammilaria again

Going trough a lot of pics on Mammilarianet’s species section, I am cross-eyed but unfortunately not any wiser about the ID on this plant. It could possibly be this or that or something completely different. The plant is in a 10 cm. pot and is about 15 cm.tall.
