Unhappy snakeplants? I didn't even know that was possible!

The tips of the leaves on the snakeplants we have in our office are all turning brown. I'm not super familiar with them but I haven't had this problem before. We live in a humid environment and it's really difficult to keep mold from growing in the pots (if you have advice about how to stop that, pl...

Re: I'm IDing cacti again.

Never mind. It's Echinopsis subdenudata. Geez, I'm out of practice.

I'm IDing cacti again.

https://i.imgur.com/JdK189j.jpg I'm pretty sure this is Astrophytum myrostigma cv. onzuka. If I'm not mistaken, they can have anywhere from 4 to 6 ribs. We have all these that have five ribs and one single plant with four ribs. https://i.imgur.com/9f3L2fn.jpg My best guess for this is Astrophytum a...

What exactly are the light spots.

I would assume they have something to do with lack of light and/or corking, but somebody asked me about them yesterday and I honestly have never thought about it before.

Re: I think this might be a Turbinicarpus.

The areolas of spines made me assume it wasn't a Mammillaria, but you would almost definitely know better than I.

My friend posted this.

I'm guessing this is an E. horrida. Maybe a cultivar. I'm thinking maybe water it a little more often and partial shade, but y'all know a lot more than I do so I wanted to ask you. Please help me save my plant. This is my first succulent, and it is not doing well. When I got this plant, it was BEAUT...

Sedum rubrotinctum and air conditioning

My S. rubrotinctum really took off and has grown gigantic over the year that I've had it. Yesterday, I heard this noise like small things falling on the floor, and I couldn't figure out what it was, until I noticed that all the leaves were falling off my plant. I picked them up to so I can plant the...

Re: Grow light for an Opuntia microdasys

I got it off Baopals, which is kind of like an ebay specifically for expats who live in China. If it's a hunk of junk I'm decidedly unsurprised.

Re: Grow light for an Opuntia microdasys

So the grow light even at a close level didn't seem to be helping, and since it's spring, I decided to move the cactus to a window sill. It still looked pretty miserable and a lot of the older pads died. I repotted all the new 'pads' (they are so skinny they can barely be called that) and took it ou...

Re: Can this bamboo be saved?

Is there a brand of fungicide or something that I could look up? Or maybe a specific name of the chemical? I'm an American living in China and it's difficult for me to find stuff sometimes.
