Garage sale - $1

rina_June 24, 2012

Found this at garage sale yesterday:

The soil is totally dry, container doesn't have drainage hole (at least they didn't overwater).

Is the tall one cereus peruvianus?

#1: there are 2 identical plants, reddish in color (grown dry & sunny?)- is it Haworthia?

#2: close-up of Cereus (?)

#3: little almost dry/dead fuzzy rosette (there are 2 stems that have barely-alive rosettes, few more dead ones) - I have no idea what this is:

#1:

Any comments appreciated.

Thnx.

The tall one seems to be Cereus tetragonus. This is the plant you find labeled 'Fairy Castle' in the monstrous form.

Is the barely alive rosette fuzzy? It resembles Echeveria pulvinata var. frigida 'Frosty' to me.

Aww... Rina, do they have anymore ? Talk about a good deal and being at the right place at the right time.

Rina,

Outstanding purchase!!! I'd have to have bought it for the sheer oddity of finding such a score, never mind the fact that I never collected that Cereus if given the chance in a small pot of it for sale.

Colleen;
that little rosette is really fuzzy, I think it will live. It is tiny, has a really long stem (they probably had it for a long time) and there are few dead stems too.
Thank you for the ID, I googled it & it looks very much like that.

Greg, Jeff,
I was really at the right place at the right time! I don't even go to garage sales (but now I probably will!) They live on my street & are moving to California...and the lady made me to take pot with some fake plants - but it had a nice bowl that I can use (that was "included" in purchase price...)

I'll just drill the drainage hole & use the same bowl. Maybe even keep them together - first have to research their growing needs.

Rina,

If you find the drilling a little hard going on the drill bit, use some water dribbled onto the hole while drilling.

Timing is everything, sometimes.

Nice haul for excellent price, Rina! Just adding that I don't believe there is such a thing as var. frigida. It's just Echeveria pulvinata 'Frosty'.

Oh good! Glad it's a fit.

And Rosemarie, did not know! Will fix that in my notes.
