    my favourite plants

    here is a thread devoted to my most loved plants, please post your most prized plants too! astrophytum onzuka ariocarpus kotschoubeyanus - 10 years old but still a very small fry euphorbia decaryi obregonia denegrii ceropegia stapeliiformis cristata turbinacarpus lophophorides - i think euphorbia ferox oddity (crest, normal and mutant bits) ariocarpus fissuratus diffusa kohersii stapelia leendertziae cristata astrophytum caput medusae started doing a few wee moss garden arrangements with a couple of my caudis too: possibly senecio picticaulis (cant find the tag for this one - i may be wrong) dorstenia foetida ponytail palm unknown meseb and button these two following are not mine but i love them as much as their owner does aztekium ritteri (grafted) larryleachia cactiformis

    Id needed

    looks like a pacycereus pecten-aboriginum, they are cool plants but watch out for the spikes, i got one in my knuckle and it went completely blue and numb!

    hey βluntmuffin that aztekium sounds incredibly awesome, i think we are quite lucky in nz, somewhat limited but we've got a decent portion of the coolest plants here, and the really rare ones just get hidden away by secretive growers! and Ethen what a very beautiful plant! thanks for sharing!

    name s for a new kitten member to ur family

    tea bag turned to tea bog, then bog frog, boggit, bog, bag, wee bag, boggy, boggy woggy etc etc, i sing alot of songs about her pingu is a great name! a friend of my dads used to have a naughty dog called Fire! and it would run away lots so he would often find himself wandering the streets shouting 'FIRE! FIRE!'

    what an awesome looking cat! very fluffy! i particularly liked etherealdrifter's suggestion of Tuffy MacFuffpants, but i am also a big fan of stereotypical human names for cats. i called my cat tea bag originally, then it morphed into many other imaginative nicknames. i think he/she looks like a Zeusy Poosey, maybe just Poosey if shes a she lol

    hmm i thought it wasnt very flocked too, pretty cool tho, do myriostigma tricostatums do the quite distinctive downwards pointing arrow marks between the ribs when mature? i find i can always pick favourites becuase they are usually my newest additions and as i get more cool dudes they fall backwards in ranking, but thats okay becuase they were all my favourite plant at the time i brought each one wow lovely crest/mostrose, my partner has one kinda similar but its reluctant to put out montrose sections, lots of weird morphing but it always goes to crest. i'll take a pic next time i can very nice and tidy pachanoi kk339 too!

    i love moss! i get a wee bit obsessive about it sometimes and end up walking home with huge clumps of moss and dirt in my bag and as much as i can carry in hands

    my favourite plants

    the caput medusae i think is about 2-2.5 years old (thats a rough estimate) , it was a very lucky score from a grower who knew just how special they are! and the aztekium i wouldnt have a clue, as it came to us grafted already, but its a plant i doubted i would ever see for myself in new zealand, so thats pretty damn cool, surpassing our limitations already, go NZ!
