Back from my hibernation

Ohio_Green_Thumb(Zone 5b NW Ohio)April 8, 2006

Hello all! It's been a long winter hasn't it? I've been busy all winter and took a hiatus from the forum. I guess I needed some time off.

Spring is here now and my plants are all back outside after spending the winter in the basement under lights. The spring bloomers are forming buds and soon the floral displays will begin!


Mammillaria elongata

How did your Turbinicarpus valdezianus? Did they flower and which color?

Jordi, they have not flowered yet but I can see a very small bud on one of them. They are back outside now, so maybe the sunshine will coax them to bloom.

Welcome back, Amy.

Hope you had a nice 'winter rest'. I wanted to let you know that the Euphorbia greenwayi is finally showing signs of new growth! I was worried about it all winter, but it looks like it's going to be fine. It's outside now, enjoying the sun/shade. It's been in the high 70s here every day, so I put almost everything out.

I have been doing more posting at the forum in the link below than I have here, but I still hang around here, too.

Enjoy your spring!

All right, stop showing off you part time cactophile. I took some time off too and had a shoulder surgery and got married. Waiting to have the old GB (gall bladder) yanked out now. Think we can start a do-it-yourself surgery web site? I lost one sweet cactus this Winter, a big Thelocactus. RIP. -CJ P.S. Greenlarry, I married a British gal so watch it or I'll turn her loose on you!
