My order from Miles to Go just came in today. My what large Hoodia they sent me. Along with their Huernia cousins'. They where every thing I expected of them. A large version of Huernia but with flowers much larger than all their friends.

Stush, I see the Cost going through the roof for you this year at an all time Record high! But then that's what we do, we collect & collect and collect somemore and we just can't seem to get enough.

You know something funny Stush, I was at a business meeting the other day and I noticed some plants in the office and I mentioned to some other guy's, I said, Boy those sure are some Nice looking Plants they have here, Then I started laughing & thinking, Boy!!! you know your getting old when you sound like thattalking about plants Lol...

What is it with these Cacti & Succulents that their SOOOO addictive? Does anyone ever get over this :/

You just keep on going collecting my friend, I am :) And OH YES the roots do look good ;)


RE: Come look at my Hoodia

Nice stuff, Stan. What is the plant upper left; the tag is turned. I have ordered from Miles many times and always been impressed.


RE: Come look at my Hoodia

Some very impressive plants and roots, indeed! Perhaps your H. gordonii will soon look like the one I linked to below.

You'll have to obtain a Hoodia officinalis so I can admire your pics of its flowers when it blooms. heh

Love the mottling on the Duvalia sulcata!

RE: Come look at my Hoodia

I hope not. It must smell like dead fish laying around. I think the cops will come around and look for bodies. wantonamara = Mara Has some nice plants. I am hoping to get like hers.
Where do I find 'officinalis'. I have 'juttae' and seeds for 'ruschi' (nice large red flowers) on their way.
Yes I saw that mistack. It is Huernia somalica hybrids which has a yellow flower like the one I lost from you. Can't be sure untill thay actually flower. I really am impressed with how many limbs/arms on each plant. If I want to, I could split them up for more plants. I would not do it untill they get bigger and don't want to delay flowering.
That order was only $35.50 complete. I have seen Hoodia plants going for douple that alone.
