I separated my Crassula Portulacea (Shrek Plant/ET fingers) and I think it/they look way nicer. Also added some basics back to my collection like Jade plants (bought one with 4 cuttings and separated) and a Zebra Haworthia
Stopped at a Lowe's while out of town this weekend and rebuilt most of what I had in my collection before, and added some new ones too! I got all the fake flowers cut off with minimal damage and potted them into 4 inch clay pots. I also decided to downsize the pots of the others that I had in 6 inch pots, to 4 inch as well.
I also bought a couple Brasiliopuntia Brasiliensis pads off eBay, the only place I could find them. That was the tall super prickly Opuntia I had before. I have them in 2 inch pots, no pics of those yet though.
Pretty quiet in here this time of year! My collection of cacti and succulents are still alive and well in a basement window for the winter. How's everyone else's doing? Add anything new to your collection lately?
Western Nebraska purple pincushion cactus I've had for about 6 years. She flowers every summer.
"Purple pincushion cactus, Coryphantha vivipara, grows in sandy to rocky prairies of central and western Nebraska, where its brilliant flowers are seldom seen because they last less than a day." (credit UNL.edu)
Got some new additions for the collection in the last few weeks. Picket up these 3 from Lowe's last week...
Ordered these 8 from Planetdesert.com which is in California. They have a pretty awesome site, huge selection. They just arrived today. Packaging was excellent, these were all wrapped in paper as well and shipped with a heatpack...
