You got some really beautiful plants, no wonder you're happy. They look like they're going to be very happy with you too.

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

Thank you so much for showing us all those pictures. You did a really great job there. I feel like almost being there. Thanks again. Do get get to meet anyone there? I will same this and watch over and over again.

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

That's a great haul! Those certainly are interesting plants and some I've never seen before. I think my favorite is the neoporteria. I've often wondered if it feels soft or harsh. And I like that echinopsis `haku jo.` Those spikes look deadly, but I love the colors it has.

(Oh, I think we know all the nicknames and have had fun with them on occasion making up some of our own...)


RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

No, i didnt get to meet anyone :( ... the echinopsis 'haku jo' actually has very thin wiglly spines so they arent that painfull ... i thought that when i touched it i would die :P

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

What a HAUL, Zeck! Where on earth do you keep your 1000+ collection? Looks like lots of treasures!! =)

The Euphorbia hybrid may or may not be E. 'Sunrise'. When it grows a bit more, maybe you can tell.

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

I will second Rosemarie's emotion! WOW! A very happy birthday to you, Zeck!

I think your mystery plant in #15 with the Kalanchoes is Plectranthus amboinicus 'Cuban Oregano'. Does it smell like Pine Sol? I have 2 varieties, a large leaf and a smaller leaf. Yours looks like the larger.

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

I keep my 1000+ in about a third of my yard ... they are all pretty much small plants right now ... growing larger everyday ... i dont know if im gonna have enough room for themm all some day! One cereus i have grew like a foot already this year :P (multiple offsets)

I like the WOW it gave me a good laugh :D !

I really like the euphorbia ... because it is a sunrise can it take less sun? What is a sunrise exactly?

Thanks for the birthday hanzrobo, your too kind! If it does smell like pine sol (im going right now ) i will have it next to me always and i will be smelling it, always (i looovveeee the smell of pine sol)

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

Wow. You haveso many beautiful plants! The sale was great wasn't it? If I only had unlimited cash! Lol. My boyfriend unfortunately doesn't give me an unlimited plant allowance :) He thinks I have too many plants in our small apartment yard.

I love your plant that looks like a obesa but is clumping. Its so cute. Ive really startedto like the obesa and obesa look a likes. Love the spereical shape.

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

The Neoporteria is indeed a Neoporteria senilis or -nowadays- Eriosyce senilis!

BTW there is no Turbinocarpus. The correct spelling is Turbinicarpus. Tell this Jeff Harris too, please!


RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

So what are you going to do when you run out of room?

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

I dont want to Talk about it ... someday going to have to ... STOP COLLECTING... *sobs in corner* ... no, ill just have to find other places to stuff them, sell some, give some away .... i kinda want to give a nice sized one to someone on here ... maybe you cause your one of my favorites :D

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

I need to get some shelving for my plants. I'm running out of room already in my tiny yard. I mostly have to have hanging baskets of plants. I wish I had a nice house with a big yard. Maybe someday! :)

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

Thats what i want too! A little house, just down to the basics, with a beautiful yard filled with cacti and cycads and maybe some tropicals ... ahhh, i cant wait ...

RE: Huntington C/S Show Purchases (very picture heavy)

So jealous of everyone who gets to go to shows like this. I suppose it's a good thing, however. I'm a noob to c/s who would get overly excited, spend all my money, and then end up killing a ton of these beauties due to inexperience, and inevitably cry like a baby. ;)

So. Beautiful. Thanks for the pictures, they are stunning!
