The middle one is my favorite. How do they keep it so perfectly round like that? What kind of pot is under all that? How do they move it without breaking it?

Hope you all liked the pictures. Sorry I didnt get the names of the plants. I should have paid more attention.

Moosetrackz,
Thanks for sharing, lots of interesting and beautiful plants! In your last photo, what is that plant in the middle (the one you say is your favorite)? I don't think I've ever seen one of those before... whatever it is. ;)

Planto

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

I'm pretty new to succulents/cactus so I have no idea what that is. I've seen it before in other peoples pictures from shows and was so excited to see it in-person. Its so awesome looking. I wish I could have touched it to see what it felt like but they frown on that at shows lol

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Moosetrackz,
It's very intriguing looking. I would've wanted to touch it too.

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Could it be a Abromeitiella brevifolia?

I REALLY like the haworthia Truncata clump c: i have one but its like, 2 inches long ...

I also like the Hoodia and the pachypodium brevicaule :)

Oooh the is the coolest cactus ever!

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Nice pictures!

You have a much better camera than me. Love them! Thanks for adding them.

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Jelly beans indeed! My God, is that honestly a giant clump of H. cooperi var. truncata? Holy snot, that's amazing. I cannot imagine how gorgeous that would be with back light. I'd be the happiest lady on Earth if I were to own a glowing Haw clump that large. And the Dyckia, phew, so pretty; want so much!

No wonder Aloe peasonii wins the show.

Love the pictures. I truly appreciate the effort of you guys taking and uploading the shots for those of us who can't be at these shows.

RE: ID, middle plant in the last picture looks like Deuterocohnia brevifolia?


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

My word. Now I need to pick up my jaw from the floor so I can hyperventilate into a paper bag.

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Very, very, very nice. Thanks for taking the time to post these.

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Alkosa, yes, you got the name correctly on that plant. Microthrix also ID'd it with its old name (the one I'm used to seeing), Abromeitiella brevifolia.

That was truly a mass of amazing specimen plants last year!! I must make a note to try to make the Huntington's annual July Show & sale this time. (Reggie, should we make a plan??!!??)

I missed this post last year, & didn't see Jordi's fantastic Eulychnia castanea fa. spiralis blooming till now!! Wow! Have not seen one before!!

Thanks to Moosetrackz & Lzrddr for posting all the pix from that 2012 show! What a treat!

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

theres a show at the huntington on the 28th of this month. im going to that one if anyone else wants to go :D


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Moosetrackz, what is the 11th photo down??? I have one like it that I am trying to ID.


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

I don't know if I could make it this month, Zeck, as we're scheduled to install a block wall.

Mara, I don't think Moosetrackz/Dani has been posting to this forum since Jul of last year. Not sure GW had the checkbox for replies in place back then...but they could be lurking. =)

Unfortunately, I don't know what that one is, but a guess is Eriosyce occulta (it has more wool or ? than I would expect for this one though).


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Incredible. Jordy that flowering Eulychnia castanea fa. spiralis!!!! Wowsa. I have never seen one in bloom before. Thanks for linking to that! I have the CSSA Show and Sale in my calendar already Rosemarie!! Would love to have company. I have it for JUNE 29th.


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Thank you rosemarie. IT got me on the right family and I think I have an ID for a cactus I was looking for.

RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

tthe 11th one down is Coopiapoa tenuissima monstrose


 o
RE: Huntington Show Pics (a lot of pics)

Good catch, Zeck!! Yay! That's it! I was in too much of a hurry. Couldn't find a specimen from past flower shows with a name. That one was in part of my brain with no retrieval option. Ha!

Copiapoa tenuissima forma monstruosa it is (I think)! I am not sure if there is variability of the spines (having vs. not), though.
