Re: Heard this was really rare

I'm thinking it's some type of Haageocereus.

Re: ID plz!

Looks to me like something from the Echinopsis genus. Might be hard to ID without flowers or a close up of its spines.

Re: Is my first cactus a mammalaria rhodantha ???

I don't believe that's a mamm. It looks more like something in the Echinocereus genus.

Heard this was really rare

Hello. Trying to ID this for a friend. Was told it was really rare, too, so remembering the name was a challenge. I don't have any other photos, unfortunately. But I also know it is 20+ years old and about 6ft.

Thank you!

Re: Black substence on my cholla.

It does look like mildew. Any way to clean it off or just let it dry out? Actually, that's called "sooty mold", and it's a problem when we're growing some Opuntioid species in a humid environment. Good news is that sooty mold is a bit unsightly, but by no means life-threatening. The humid...

Oh yeah! It does look like mildew. Any way to clean it off or just let it dry out?

Black substence on my cholla.

Hello. So I discovered this black substance on my Opuntia fulgida v. mamillata. I think it might be a fungus. Any tips on how to get rid of it would be great.

Re: Looking for Backebergia militaris

I don't think you'll find this. This species is a Mexican endemic so habitat-collected seed isn't likely to be available unless someone smuggles it out illegally (and as they make unattractive seedlings it seems unlikely anyone would bother). It grows to 5-6m. Flowers are produced from an apical/te...

Re: Looking for Backebergia militaris

I would like plants or seeds of this as well, but I'm not sure anyone in Australia has any. I would love to be proven wrong. Well, the perfect time for you would be to ask this forum around October and November, when most of the European seed lists are being updated. I could always order this speci...

Re: Lawrencia helmsii “Dunna Dunna”

There are lots of restrictions for removing/collecting native flora and fauna in Australia, unless you have a special permit/license. There are also multiple layers of rules/regulations regarding selling/transporting plant materials between each state. A lot of plants/seeds are not allowed to sell/...

But unfortunately Australian succulents are not easy to obtain. Maybe it will take a few decades for them to become more mainstream.
Haha. It does!

Why do you think that is?
