Please post photos of your currently blooming succulents :)

Haworthiopsis attenuata variegata - pups, separated and potted some months ago; one is blooming (top left). Insignificant flowers - not easy to take good photo. I wonder if there is any benefit to plant in cutting off the inflo? These are still small, 3 potted in 4" pot:

    I was told this is either Monilaria or Delosperma. I think they are the same...maybe??????? The issue is I haven’t a clue and they are supposed grow a caudex. When they initially germinated, they looked like bunny ears; globular center with two cute ears on either side. Any help???

    Aloe Crosby's prolific? First aloe to ever flower!

    Threesome. With any luck, my insect friends have provided due diligence.

    I forgot what this one is called but I got it as a leaf cutting a couple of years ago. Itty bitty flowers. Hard to capture on my phone.

    Tyler - adromischus? Not sure which one (maybe maculatus?)

  • SoCal Stewart (San Diego, Ca Zone 10A/10B)

    Yes. adromischus. That is what I was told that one is. Thank you, Rina.

    Just now, the film is still wet. (not really, it's digital. Maybe the digits are wet.


    Cactus originally sold as Cereus peruvianus (if I spelled it right)

    Bought in a two inch pot in 1974, saved from a vandal attack in 1994.

    Gadzooks. 1974! That is some serious street creds there, yo. Nice pom on that flower, too.

  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI

    I’ve been busy with the paintbrush. I guess I’m going to be busy planting or sharing. On an unrelated question for Wendy or anyone: When do your E. bupleurifolia usually flower?

  • stupidlazydog CT zone 5b/6a

    My little bupleurifolias from Miles2Go flowered recently. My big one (which is no more, too much damage from the root mealies to save) always flowered off and on through the entire summer, probably starting about mid to late June.

  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI

    Thanks, Wendy. Just none of mine have flowered this season. I had one earlier and collected seed but no germination.

  • isde02(zone5b)

    Wow Wendy, sorry to hear that it really was an awesome plant.

  • isde02(zone5b)

    My Aloe 'oik' flowered for me. None of the flowers are left on the stalk but it has a seed pod waiting to pop.

    rina_Ontario,Canada thanked isde02(zone5b)
  • bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI

    Wendy, another OT question. Are your bupleurifolia in 100% grit or some organic material added. I’d take this private but didn’t find you on Messenger.

  • stupidlazydog CT zone 5b/6a

    Mine are in a mix of lava, pumice, chicken grit, a small amount of turface, and a small amount of orchiata bark. I may have mixed in a very small amount of coir for the small ones (too hot out right now for me to go take a look). They're all in clay pots.

  • stupidlazydog CT zone 5b/6a

    Hildewintera colodomononis... Cleistocactus colodomononis... Cleistocactus winteri ssp. colodomonis.... What is the correct current name?


    coming attraction...

    rina_Ontario,Canada thanked stupidlazydog CT zone 5b/6a
  • gdinieontarioz5

    According to Llifle, the current name is Cleistocactus winteri subs. colademononis. I think “gorgeous plant” works fine too.

  • SoCal Stewart (San Diego, Ca Zone 10A/10B)

    SLD, my favorite name for that one is “Monkey Tail”. I know many would chastise and attempt to correct my lack of usage of the correct, current proper Latin name whatever it is but it looks like a Monkey Tail to me!

  • stupidlazydog CT zone 5b/6a

    Thanks, dinie. I couldn't figure out which name was the most recent.

    Stewart, I agree.... Monkey Tail is it's correct name :-)

    Rebutia donaldiana


    sixth or seventh time it has bloomed this year. Inspired me to get some Rebutia seeds and see what comes of them.

    Selenicereus validus flowered for the first time for me last night, 3 flowers at the same time. It didn't last as long as I'd hoped for (closed by first daylight this morning) and there was no fragrance.

    Nice season for everybody it seems :)


    Bill, very nice "Not-just-yellow" flower on that Copiapoa, what's the species? Attended a talk by Woody Minnich on Copiapoa recently, jaw-dropping pix in their environment. I am a softy for Copiapoas...

  • gdinieontarioz5

    First flower on a Tricho pup. I am hoping to get one of those big, multistemmed plants, so this is exciting. It is inside for the day, as I treated it with imidacloprid last fall. It was spreading root mealies to all its neighbours.

  • aloebot

    Alain, it is Copiapoa rupestris.

  • ConnyNL (The Netherlands, 8b)

    I am extremely happy to share pictures of Selenicereus validus flower no 4 which had opened fully this morning, with a lovely gentle vanilla fragrance to match its colour

    (so yes, I was rightfully disappointed last week with the first 3 flowers.)

    The plant can stay now :-)

    All so gorgeous, Conny. That Adenium is just beautiful!

  • Rob Blomquist

    Out of the blue, Rebutia steinbachii produces. I bought this plant about a month ago, moved it directly to pumice and I get a flower. What a sweetie.
