Re: A beginner's guide to repotting newly-purchased cacti

I actually expected a response from you Spence. I knew i could count on you for truly valuable advice. I didn't think about a dehydrated cactus... All I could think of was waiting for spring to water a repotted cactus in a winter dormancy/rest. As always, thanks for the expert advice. Your assistanc...

Re: Anybody have a Stephania erecta craib?

If it's still dormant now, better wait till spring to wake it up. It HAD a shoot/branch (about 1in or so) when it was shipped, but the shoot died in the time it took to ship it, and broke off when i unpacked it. It was dry and dead. So i thought i would put it in my kitchen window in temperatures t...

Re: Pachypodium Baronii v. windsorii

On this way we hope to protect all endangered Pachypodium species. I am a pachypodium lover in the United States. Although I only have a few, they are among my favorite plants. And I am slack-jawed in regard to your collection AND your objective. You could push me over with a breath... SO beautiful...

Yes... with all due respect, I was curious about the choice of the word "Congregation"... and I quite agree with you on your alternative word choice.

Anybody have a Stephania erecta craib?

I just got a Stephania erecta craib from Thailand, and am wondering if there anybody on the forum that has one or more of these and can give me some realistic personal-experience-based-advice on what I might do for its care. I'd post a picture, but it's just a brown golfball sized lump at this point...

Re: Should I give this to my cacti
