Re: Please help with ID

Yeah maybe shiki-shiki is better than scheek-scheek

In Portuguese the "que" in the end of the many words sounds like "qui".

Pilosocereus gounellei is not very tall but instead it is multibranched.

Re: Spider mites? Or something else?

Thanks Keith
I'll take a closer look. What kind of fungicide would you use? A systemic one?
Thansk a lot!

Re: Please help with ID

Xique-xique is the popular name of Pilosocereus gounellei (yes, it is now a scientific name too, but before that it was/has been the name people from the region of occurence of this plant - northeast Brazil - call it). I can't imagine how to pronounce it in "latin" or English. In Portugues...

Re: Root fungus?

I cant see the round things...hard to say anything

Maybe you could clean the roots and take out all substrate. Wash and trim them , try to remove sick parts and let it dry for some days before repoting.

Sorry I can't help too much

Spider mites? Or something else?

I have observed these lesions in some of my cacti . It occurs only in Ferocactus and Matucana. The increase of the lesions is very slow. If it is a fungus, it is not agressive. I believe that it is caused by spider mites but I cant find them. Any help will be much appreciated P.s. : I gave the plant...

Re: Copiapoa humilis?

Hard to tell for me. I always get C. humulis and C. hypogaea mixed up when they're that small... Thank you very much, Lactus. I had a C. hypogeae lizard skin once, so in my mind C. hypogeae is different from C. humilis (but maybe lizard skin is different from "normal" ones). Now I'll try ...

Re: Gymnocalycium horstii ssp. buenekeri: Male or female?

The ADBLPs list reports self sterility/fertility but most of the self-sterile are monoicious species and will always have male and female parts in the same individual. As far as I know, dioicy is the exception and is not common in cacti. Maybe only a few examples can be cited? Or am I wrong? The li...

Re: Gymnocalycium horstii ssp. buenekeri: Male or female?

The ADBLPS list reports self sterility/fertility, which is not exactly the same as dioicy / monoicy. (dioicious: male and female in separated individuals; monoicious: male and female in the same individual) Every dioicious plant will be self-sterile because they are always only male or only female, ...
