He's very welcome! I love these guys! I almost stepped on him, they really blend in with the sand! I usually catch them, but didn't have time today. It will be here all summer, so another time. And I've never been peed on ;-)

I know you do Mike. :-)

I'll see what plant pics I may have to add to this.

Agave 'Confederate Rose' - it's even more puppiferous since spring's sprung.

Previously misidentified as Agave potatorum, this is Agave 'Confederate Rose' (Agave parrasana) photo 7de4001f-0a3b-4daa-ade1-a4fb4550e8ad_zpsf9eb0d4b.jpg

Agave pygmaea 'Dragon Toes' has pups, too, just not nearly as many as 'CR'.

They guy I aim to be. The artist, Karl Stieglitz, had a number of paintings which depicted men with cactus. And the picture is now more handsomely matted.

Jatropha podagrica female flowers are open. The other flower buds are all male, and will open once the female flowers wilt.

Oh, love the Agave! But they are all very nice. :)

Here's my contribution. A formerly unknown stapeliad which I finally got a documented flower from. I believe it to be Stapelianthus Decaryi. What do you all think?

RE: General Pic Thread

Oh I love it! It's beautiful! I love stapeliad's ! I spent today working on re potting mine and putting a few pieces around the yard to see how they do. Don't have this one though.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

"Put it around the yard". Ha. Must be nice you darned Arizonian with your perfect cactus weather. :P I have to shelter mine, especially my Edithcolea Grandis that I am hoping blooms soon. But yes, I love the stapeliads. This one has no odor though. I'm actually let down by that.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

ROFL!! Well I wouldn't call it perfect, but close. My hybrid aloe's got moved from under a shrub/filtered light to the east side of the house and they are pouting! May need to give them a little shade, and we do have a hard freeze once in awhile.

I get a kick out of how these flowers smell! lol.. I would have to say it is my favorite succulent! Years ago when I got my first one I went up to hubby and said smell my pretty flower! He did and has never trusted me again! ROFL!!

RE: General Pic Thread

Never had the courage to smell these flowers. Once had a huernia, didn't know what it was, just thought the stem bodies were neet. A bud appeared and just before it opened it began to attract so many flies they covered the flower from sight, I was horrified. I gave it away to someone who did appreciate it's peculiar charm better than me. The flowers ARE attractive, just really hate flies.
chicagardens, yikes, your visitor looks big enough to put a saddle on it. Love the dainty flowers.

RE: General Pic Thread

chicagardens~ looking back at your picture he may have had a snack.. shower, and breakfast.. living the good life. lol.. of coarse your beautiful fur baby may have had a snack too. ;-)

My little guy almost gets stepped on he camouflages so well! He only eats bugs, so that's a good thing.

Here's our big guys! We had these beauties two summers in a row, I'm hoping they will be here again this summer. We really enjoyed having them here!! Watched them grow from tiny babies on up.
Yes, they did eat some of the garden, but not enough to do any serious damage.
lol..


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

Sundewd,
I hate to say this, you are living with a Huernia. It is in the Asclepiads family. Very simular to mine. My flower is a deep dark red. Mine grew a lovly crest on the end of one of it's branches. I will remove it soon to grow out on it's own. These are currently my favorit plants for right now. I have been lucky with seeds and have about 30 seedlings to see what they grow into. Here's a link to more;

 o
RE: General Pic Thread

OK.. this is confusing! lol.. your right Stush, It does seem to be more like a Huernia. I got so excited about the flower I didn't even notice. But doing a google search with the name given, tons came up as a stapeliad.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

I thought it was too until I saw the pic of Stapelianthus Decaryi. Unless you have a Huernia species in mind, this is a dead match to S. Decaryi. Mine is just purple due to high light but is a small plant.

Either way, I just like these plants. I have another unidentified one that is lucky to even be alive after being outside all winter without protection.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

Wow jojo your guy is real interesting looking. I love it! I have to find the pic of my other fur baby sitting in a pot of...you guessed it...succulents! He smooched them all! Lol

Nothing fancy but its all I have to show right now.

RE: General Pic Thread

I managed to save a couple of pieces from a C. 'Campfire' that rotted in a pot of MG cactus soil. These struggled, but made it! I'm happy because it is one of my favorite colorful plants.


 o

Good save !! They are beautiful!

Agreed on the campfire! I just got a few, nothing spectacular yet. I hope they look like yours soon. (:

I love the Schlumbergera! I have little to no luck with these...but I try every year (:

RE: General Pic Thread

Sundewd,
Yes to Stapelianthus Decaryi. If ever a plant looks just like the picture.
Sorry I got back to you so late. Forgot I posted on this. It is a Stapelia hybrid. With what, no way to know. Maybe it was in an open greenhouse with many. It is a keeper. If you end up with too many like Bikerdoc, Keep us in mind.
Hope one of my seedling turns out simular. Notice the many rolls of points in the arms just like my crested one. Regular Huneria has 4 rolls like the ones Bikerdoc is giving away. Also yours has that deep bell shape flower. Sets it apart.
Stush


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

I will definitely keep you all in mind if the pot decides to explode. Stapeliads tend to grow really, really slowly for me though.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

Nice! More beauties!!!!
Sundewd, that Notocactus Magnificus pale flower is sublime. So pale, pretty and round!
angelilly, what a neat aloe somaliensis. Never saw this pattern before. I like!
This is rebutia Apricot. So small, yet, giving me a sample of crops to come in future.
 photo rebutiaApricotcopy.jpg

Always enjoy the pics from everyone's collections.
I, also, wanted to post this perfect example of what makes these plants so charming and desirable. Plus, they return the investment, tenfold. Even from accidentally knocked off leaves! Love this quality of succulents.

Can I ask a question.....how do you add multiple photos in one post? I am new and cannot figure that one out.


 o
RE: General Pic Thread

This site is one picture only. To post more, you have to join a photo sharing site like 'Photobucket'. It gets to be a pain some times with my slow computer. So I don't use it anymore. Maybe some one else can give you a better answer.

RE: General Pic Thread

Hi Paula,
The only way that I know of is to join a free photo hosting site, most of us use photobucket.
Upload the photos to there , and then copy and paste the html code here into your post.
It will look like a long code, but will show your pictures when you look at the preview.

Thank you Stush & JoJo..... I have Picasa, not sure if it has same capabilities. If not Photobucket is on my "BUCKET LIST"!

My Stapelianthus Decaryi which I am now calling the "Alien pod plant" recently inflated 3 balloons with at least 2 more forming. 2 have opened. One today, one yesterday. I'm hoping the last opens tomorrow for the 3-peat.

Both

Older one. I notice they curl backwards more on day 2.

Today's flower. Slightly curled.

And here is a cool shot. What is inside an Alien Pod plant? Let's have a look...

Darn. I don't see any aliens down there. But maybe thats a good thing.
