Re: My greenhouse and plants

Good evening mmcavall, very interesting this lineup! Are you sure about the quantities? The approx. 700 ppm correspond to approx. 7ml per 10 liters of water - isn't that very little? How long have you been using this type of fertilization? Thank you very much and best regards K.W. Hi KW thanks for ...

Re: Monadenium/Euphorbia ritchiei care

What I observe here is that they will not display leaves when grown under intense light. But even without leaves they are thriving. I have the same Monadenium ritchei in the same position in the greenhouse for some years now and it is actively growing and flowering even without a single leaf. I like...

Re: My greenhouse and plants

Hi Jerry. I have two E. tulearensis from seeds. Same batch but while this one grew fine and relatively fast (they were sowed in 2017), the otherone is still very small with two or three leaves only. So yes they expand outwardly but this may not happen to all plants. I agree with you in relation to h...

Re: My greenhouse and plants

Thanks Zimi, JCcares and Keith for kind comments Keith: I would love to hike in the desert and bring home some gravel and rocks. I do it wherever I can but it lacks for me a desert where I could go... only boring places near me. JCcares : this older greenhouse doesn't existis anymore but I will draw...

sorry for the late answer: Yes, very early spring seems to be a good time for repotting. I prefer the time when you think the plants thinks about growing new leaves.

Re: Hot bath against root mealybugs

From my point of view; Shouldn’t we encourage people who tries to test/fiend more environmental friendly methods of dealing with pests, rather than holding on to the often quite toxic products? We already knows that many bugs gets immune to different types of products, rendering it neccessary to de...

Re: Identifying my Gymnos

It is always hard to tell what the Gymno is without knowing the origin or history of the plant. Gymnocalycium_quehlianum_3.jpg Here is one plant, my seedling, that was delivered from parents raised from Koehres seeds long time ago. And all the offspring I grew had little different spines, ribs, bod...

Some pictures taken today. It is late fall here and many species are starting to bloom in the dry period. I was particularly surprised by the beauty of the Epithelantha. Pictures of Epithelantha micromeris subs greggii Mammillaria schiedeana Mammillaria schwarzii Mammillaria moeller-valdeziana Mammi...

Re: Prune or trim roots Question?

I always trim the roots when repoting. I have the same opinio n that Download have and I systematically do that. If roots are too long it will be difficult to correctly bury them and you end up breaking lots of them, specially the thin points. A sharp cut will recover faster. But: I always repot in ...

Re: Rooting a mammillaria from a top cut

Sometimes I let the cuttings on pure sand in the vertical position and water the sand very scarcely when I know it will dry quickly. Perhaps it is useless.
