Not much I can do outside while it's raining so potted up some babies
I like grasses better than owcho`s babies, but the butterfly o'clock avatar picture is definitely a winner.
I've been busy lately. Taken 29 Zebrina Pendula ( what most people call a Tradescantia) , 29 Iresine , 29 various Scented leaf Pelargoniums and a mixed tray ( 29 )of Beloperone ( Shrimp plant ) , various species Begonias and two types of Plectranthus ( Swedish Ivy ). Also potted up 20 Kalanchoe Daigremontiana ( also known as Bryophyllum Daigremontianum ). Plus, some of pots of Maranta , Calathea and Ctenanthe. These will all be for the charity I work for
Pottin up succulent babies as well now, just ordered 200 mixed seeds from Amazon too
Couple of them have taken and are putting on new growth
Hey @Zigs when are you opening a succulent shop!? At this rate you'll need to move abode.
Thems selling for £20 a tray at the moment, "on trend" for table displays at weddings
Took as saw to my 6ft6in Stenocereus thurberi a couple of weeks ago as it was just too top heavy for its pot and impossible to move. Now got a 3ft cutting to try and root.
Made a mess of that didn't I ? Last year had to decapitate a 7' Pilosocereus azureus (beautiful blue) ; after 5 months of drying out the 4' top cutting in a spare room upstairs , adventitious roots began to develop , and now the top is growing as normal ; perhaps one day the cephalium will develop .
Nice one Paul Done a few more since then
Hello Zigs ; relatively new to this forum ; all plants are popular with me . In the 1980s worked at specialist cactus nursery in N.Yorkshire . Grown most genera , many very rare . Self -employed now in partnership as professional gardener . From cacti to conifers , caudiciform succulents to S.American Copiapoas , have dabbled in everything (and still am) !!
Sorry I missed your reply Paul Nice one
Found a pot that matches the one I got me prizewinnin cactus in... Drilled a couple of drainage holes.. One of the cuttings has put good root growth on.. Potted him up and hope he gets big enough for next years show
