New cacti and succulents

Some replace ones I lost, and others are quite new to me.
One has buds, and I am hopeful for some of the others.

You have lovely healthy cacti there Hywel. It is a bonus to find they will flower for you so soon.

Thank you. Som died last year and I didn't think I'd find them again.

Oh Hywel,you've been shopping again... I love that Astrophytum in particular. I always think they look like stars made by an icing tube. But yours has stupendous whiskers!

I love Astrophytums.
This is A. capricorne. It has yellow flowers with a bright red throat. It's a replacement for the one that died.
We just went to meet a relation for coffe in a local garden centre, and there they were !
I think there's a photo of it on one of my pages. I'll try and find it fr you.

Very nice ..also look like they were dusted with snow. Fittingly!
btw The Stapelia is large enough to flower- but those come and go very fast. I missed taking a photo of mines first bloom this end of summer. I just saw a faded bloom. Quick.

A nice collection Hywel ,I've no idea how you remember all those strange names , The tall one I rescued from our neighbours greenhouse when he moved he had left it for dead is thriving but doesn't do anything it's growing a lump from the soil at the base ,I'll have to send you a photo to see if its 'Normal ' :o)

Thank you both :)

I'll look out for the photo when you can do it Amy.

Thanks for the link Hywel - wow its a real beauty. The flower is bigger than the cactus. I had to laugh at the way the words in the link made it look as though it meant "senile member Hywel"! It was a great relief to discover that the "senile" was part of the cactus's name...I was just about to protest, lol.

Senile member Hywel ... LOL ! :D
Sometimes I think it could be true ;)

Glad to see you still have room for more, Hywel. Merry Christmas.

22 Dec, 2016

 

Thank you Linda. Merry Christmas to you also :)
There's always room for more cacti ! :D
