Looks like everyone is doing well out in the fresh air. I love the Aloe polyphylla, it is so symetrical. Tangerines in NY? That would have made the Pilgrims happy!

Love the Pachy and Aloe poly. I starting to contemplate a golden barrel cactus for the garden as well. I think they bring something new to a garden./ Thanks for the pics.

Mr. X:

Great stuff, of course!

My question on your A. poly - if you bury the pot as you do, does the plant then tolerate LI heat waves without missing a beat? I.e., is it in a full sun site during the heat of our northeast summer and not missing a beat?

Thanks.

What a FABULOUS collection of plants you have, Mark!! Thanks for sharing some of them with us!!

Can't answer any of your questions, but like the curly leaves on your Cypho! =)

Mr. T - yes the a.p. is in full sun and does not appear to react negatively to heat waves.

XMark,

Fabulous collage of some of your big and small plants.

I don't think I've seen an A. d. that hadn't branched in flower. And the A. p. - what a crown of leaves for a prince(ss) of an Aloe.

I question I beg an answer for, though - where did you get your C. uter? I am willing to cash out my 401K for it, so don't hold back.
