    They say they can't adapt to our seasons... But mine seem to shed and flower on cue pretty well. So I don't necessarily agree with that. But I also live in Texas, my conditions are similar to Africa. :P

    If you liked those... Check this out. I took a preexisting planter, broke it down, removed every plant and then rearranged them back in there with new plants. Wanted to fill it out more.






    Quite a hodge-podge in there.

    You've got a really nice collection! It's making me reconsider my individual pots for everything, everything looks so much nicer in a planter together.

    Just an FYI, your Faucaria tigrina is actually a Faucaria felina ssp. tuberculosa. The nursery that supplies and labels these misidentifies quite a few of their species, as you've already seen with your cacti. The difference in ID'ing the two is tigrina has completely smooth leaves on the top, and tuberculosa gets those warty bumps.

    Oh, really? I thought they looked different. The one in the last picture group I knew was a feline tuberculosa CV sato. I do have two others, one I thought looked different. On page two. Thanks for the info, I have caught them mislabeling before. They also like to label Lapadaria as Pleiospilos. Hehe.

    Yes I was referring to the one on page 2, the "warts" on the top are a giveaway that it isn't tigrina. There's also the potential that it could be a hybrid. I have one that looks exactly the same (possibly from the same vendor?) I split that up last year sent half to a friend in California, and it looks totally different in his conditions. However, for the variety and price I have picked up quite a few succulents and cacti from them over the years, mislabeled about 20% of the time, lol.

    Your cv. 'Sato' I didn't even notice until you pointed it out, that's a really nice one!

    Too weird to live, too rare to die.

    East to West, lol, I probably have 60 on my back porch right now. Think I fall under the "too many" category myself.

    This 'Tigrina' is really a Tuberculosa too, right?

    This one is greener like the Sato. The one on page two is bluish. Really wish those flower pods would come on with it.

    Yes, or a hybrid of the two (tuberculosa and tigrina) but it could be just different forms of tuberculosa, or tuberculosa looks different under different conditions. Do you grow it in full sun, all day, or partial shade?

    Example, 1st picture is the one I suspect is a hybrid or a tuberculosa w/less tubercles (one head of for sure tuberculosa in the background.)

    The second is a for sure tuberculosa I had that I split up. They look different enough but both have tubercles. With less popular plants, it's pretty difficult to find enough good information to figure it out. No clue why these aren't more popular though.





    Sorry to derail your thread, I just know that many people that grow their plants seriously like to know what their plant actually is, and figured you might be one of these people (seeing as how you're posting on a board dedicated to it! )

    Hehe, yes, thank you for that information. I do like to have accurate tags. Sounds like that might not happen with these though. Probably is some sort of hybrid, there's so many of them.

    Oh, I found two Argyroderma living rocks earlier. Couldn't believe it. Will take/post pics later. They are so cute, they look like little Easter eggs.
