    My set up has rather changed since those pictures, lol. new additions means I have to be creative. I had this ugly rusty firewood holder outside on the porch for years now. It sits right in front of a brick pillar; for years I've just put plants around/in it. But recently when I threw out an old griddle top I got an Idea: to wedge it in there to create a platform. A bit of red weaving from a coffee table inside made it slip resistant. The result is this little honey hole:



    Some new/old plants there you havent seen until now. I recently managed to acquire an aloinopsis I mentioned in post 1:



    Not far from also flowering

    And here's a few of my best cacti:



    My beloved mini cholla and monacantha monstrose.

    This was labeled as a "Notocactus Stefanii" at a local nursery, but I can find no record of species name "Stefanii". I think this is likely a Leninghausii monstrose:

    Good set of gloves. :P

    But no, I have only divided succulents... As far as monstrose varieties I prefer to leave them alone cause they are so unique.

    One more for today: a very colorful "fire sticks" and oversized Kalanchoe Fang bush plant.

    Hey, I have Firesticks (Euphorbia tirucalli) as well. Be careful when handling them. Their sap is pretty dangerous.

    Yeah, that's one of my favorite plants. I've had one around for the last ten years or so. The sap is poisonous, but I've had good luck with cuttings and such not irritating me. The trick with that is to dip the cutting in cool water to stop the seeping.

    Up until this winter, I had a very large and branchy tirucalli. Had a bad storm one night when it was cold that pretty much killed it. All that Is left now is a small off shoot of the main branch that has some life left. Sigh. Still saddens me.

    Had a request on chat last night for pics of my Haworthia. Here's the first three, all clustered near the middle. An H. Retusa, Marginata and Mirabilis Mundula.



    Here's my fourth and final one, in back. I believe this is a Coarctata v Chalwinii
