The potted plants were severely dried out but I think they have finally hydrated. I've had this plant before but lost it to freezing weather. I'll be more mindful of these. They are not readily available at local nurseries here. Thanks for offering them for sale!
Got the cutting in fine shape and have planted it. I am old so hope I will live to see it bloom!
Can’t wait for the bloom. I love epiphytic cactus. Works well in our salt air.
Great cross. I got this specimen in July, 2021 and set it in a wide pot. So far it’s more than tripled in size and is beginning to overflow the edges of the pot (as in this picture from this past January). It’s been in full sun and doing well - the color does change here with the season (ranging from more red to more green as the angle of the sun changes), but that seems to be typical for several of my Hechtia specimens. Definitely recommend.
Wow! Just when you thought you knew everything about Dennis Cathcart! This one was hard to put down. The stories Dennis retells reminded me of the old Tropiflora Cargo Reports. Exciting, adventurous, high drama set in some of the beautiful and sometimes dangerous jungles of the world. Even a sad story here and there…I had to put the book down for the day after reading about Big Red. If you’re a fan of Tropiflora, you need to read this book!
