That was a thread on here, Kat. Did you think it was on the Cacti Gallery forum (over there)? Hardly anyone frequents that forum anymore, since loading pix became easier on this forum.

Most of mine I posted pics of last week. Since I've only been collecting this year, I really only have the bigger crassula, the rest I would squash if I tried to get in a photo with them lol. Will be making more stands over the coming days, so you might see me playing with power tools lol

Posting pics of yourself is one of those things I think people avoid. I'm nosey, and peek in at this thread, but at the same time I'm rather secretive and don't put much about myself out there on the internet. Not to mention the ladies setting the bar pretty high right off the bat!

Hahaha well i figure everyone else has pretty much posted pics on other forums of themselves with plant's so SHOULDN'T be a problem to post HERE minus the cacti glasses LOL! Plus with my luck I'm prob all over the internet for modeling picture's and work ad's sooo don't matter to me. .where i live I'm one of THOSE people who gets stopped and asked if I'm ME all the time, sooo it's inevitable!
But shy People are allowed to hide behind THERE plant's AND JUST show THERE eye's or something...the internet, exspecially GW don't need anymore duck face selfies! Hahaha

Be careful with the power tools misselle!

I thought so to nomen, but then AGAIN I'm NOT really a popular person on GW..i assume people like to avoid MY posts as much as possible hahaha!

Joe, we need more pics of guys...AND people in general:-P. Don't wanna turn this thread into a place filed with JUST pics of me and my plant's. LOL

People I'm sure have no problem looking at pics of you and your plants. And, I don't know that I'm the most popular person myself around here. I kind of come and go, disappearing at times, usually when things get a little to heated. I'm avoiding the container gardening forum right now due to a guy constantly picking fights with people. Life is too short to argue with people on the internet, so I just take a step back when needed. As for the pics, I'll think about it, but I'm weird about "selfies" and all that hip stuff. I don't do any social networking really, although I recently made a Twitter account, but it turns out I have nothing to say, and apparently no friends either. I know, I sound all old, but I'm actually 34. I'm just not a mainstream type....I'm a quiet country type.

KittieKat, its called haters, lol... Everyone enjoys looking at pictures except the haters.
Enjoyed looking at the pictures, we had started this until the cactus shades were misplaced. We were taking pics with the shades on and that came to an end. Maybe I'll place mine on here.

Ok heres one that isn't my plant but I'm next to one, this picture was taken while visiting Catalina island a couple years ago.

Man, and I still feel terrible that I was the last to mail those glasses before attempting to send them north of the border to Jeffrey....I don't know if the package was lost in transit (Sacramento warehouse) or confiscated due to some of the dried peppers that I included for Jeff. I would have thought that I'd be contacted if I'd violated some Canadian rule.....

Greg, did the second set of glasses also disappear???

Anyhow, on topic, I don't take many pics of myself, and even fewer with plants.

Those paddle cactus, they got to be trimmed that was and with you holding your hand against one means it has a hard woody bark. How old are they?

I always hated my picture taken. I though I didn't look good enought. Now I just don't care.

The nice part of not knowing people by pictures is that we make friends here not knowing race, creed or religion. Showing plant people are all alike inside.

I am on my 3rd cup of coffee, started to rain & maybe a wind/storm coming. Nothing as bad as some of you had recently, no hailstorm. Hope it stays that way. Just hauled all succs inside, we had some nice rain yesterday, they don't need any more water.

We just had a tiny bit of rain! And in Arizona, we get excited! LOL! Monsoons will start soon, but my plants are fairly protected so they just stay where they are.

I'm crocheting a dress for a new baby in our family, a week old tomorrow. :-) My pup is worse than the cat!! He stole the yarn out of my craft room while I was in the kitchen! LOL!

Usually on garden web if someone reports trouble in a post, the mods watch it after that.

Rina~ sounds like some tough weather! Hard to imagine hail this time of year.. but then again, it's 100 degrees where I'm at. Hope all fairs well!

Our monsoon season is starting (15th was start date-August) which means rough storms, down pours, but here and there. We do need the rain!

I have a rain barrel and love it!! 55 gal! It ran dry recently / I used up what was left of the winter rain. I save milk jugs and fill them this time of year after a rain, one storm will fill it and I can't stand to see the water go to waste!

I love the smell too! We call it the wet dirt smell.. lol.. and it's not as often as we'd like that's for sure.

I guess thats the up of having them in a balcony. No worries about rain, we do have a severe ts chance today in s. ontario. Im worried about the wind gusts, I have many small pots with seedlings outside and am worried they will get blown over. So I have my eye on the radar for the day. If there is a strong, defined thunderstorm line coming for Toronto at a good speed, Im moving them into my living room, which is about 30 cm from their current spot. :)

This whole show yourself thread is normal. Just about every forum has them. Even if one person is hogging the thread, so what? Atleast its keeping the thread alive. I usually dont like the whole show yourself threads and never post there because I have nothing to say. But I guess its moving a little off topic.

That's a great picture! And WOW! That plant is just beautiful! I can't keep one of them alive for a week, let alone years. I gave up on them. lol

Rina,
I'm not sure of our average rain fall here in Tucson, Az. But we are quite often in a state of drought! I think about 10" a year if were lucky. lol.. I'll have to research it.

There have even been a few yrs where it was so bad in the summer water was not allowed to be used to wash cars, and we were only allowed to water gardens and such 3 times a week for about 2 months! The whole city was under watch and subject to huge fines if busted.

Greg, I see what you mean, brother.

I made a rather innocuous comment which was deleted but that is fine.

Josh,
Wowzers...
Greg,
Lol.

JoJo,
You and me both. I have a friend who has holiday cacti that grow like weeds... add those to my list of "I can't grow" plants.

Hey, folks!
yeah, the Christmas cactus and I have both gotten a bit too much sun in the past few weeks! :-) I have the plant in the shade now and I'll hit it with some fertilizer when next I water. Greg, it looks amazing during the blooming season.

Jojo, you could grow one of these. Bark, that's all you need.

...Next you've got to try screened bark, screened perlite, and a pinch of potting mix....with some Osmocote mixed in, too.

Josh has never steered me wrong :-) He's been helping me over the years so I will have to give it another try with what he suggested. :-)

JoJo,
You'll have to show off your holiday cactus when you get another one then. I just know it'll look great like the rest of your plants.

I think my failure in growing them was due to the wrong potting mix. This was before I knew there was such a thing for holiday cacti, so maybe I'll try again some day too. I've seen Josh's holiday cactus before so I know they have the potential to thrive in that bark mixture (moreso than the stuff I'd put them in).

Unfortunately the INN is closed right now due to the fact that I've run out of space (oh no!), but there's always a house. A large house with a ton of windows. *nods*
