Re: Nes and his balcony of lame plants

Hi Nes 🙂 The last pic, the Loph (?) to the right, have they grafted it upside down? Looks like the roots are on top..😮 It's a butt graft. I've seen people do it with seedlings and larger plants. If you leave a few areoles on it, it should pup out of the areoles. I've also seen pups come out of the ...

Re: Nes and his balcony of lame plants

Your’e welcome 😊 Good idea , getting another one. Have to comment one the spines on the G.cardenasium again..😍 I do enjoy flowers on cacti of course but the spines, those you can admire every day. The gymnocalycium is definitely another one that I want two of so I can start reproducing them. I have...

Not sure how old it is but yes it's a small seedling.

Mike M
It's likely that I've said this. All these plants are growing in 90-100% pumice and rarely receive water.
They get direct unfiltered morning sun for about 7 hours, depending on the season

Re: Nes and his balcony of lame plants

Going to be my last post of plants here on the balcony for a while. Leaving to Michigan to do my geology field camp tomorrow morning. Took these pictures in a hurry, about 95% of my collection was captured. Some I simply didn't snap, even though I thought I had. Sinningia Macropoda potato showing ne...

My caput is only two years of age. It has a fuzzy pre pubescent bud on it, but it didn't flower.

Re: My 1st cactus ID request

This cactus is very light deprived. It looks like two completely different plants because of the etiolated growth.

Looks awesome in my opinion, definitely an impressive mutant. As to what it is, I have no idea, would have to see it in flower.

Thanks Mrs. Green, those spines are definitely getting larger with age. Can't wait till it becomes a mature plant. I might purchase another one so it can have a breeding partner.

Re: MrXeric's flowers and things

Pretty cool seeing caput on a graft. Mine only has 4 tubercules and is on its own roots. Thinking of slab grafting the tubercules

Re: Saguaro boot

Really dislike the annoying "healing-hippies" website name. Some spirit monkeys passing off random snake oils to scam unassuming people. Spiritual nuts selling minerals as "chakra aligners, or dark energy blockers" are a running joke in all Geology communities. As far as the coll...
