So you use the tray method with the cats or not?
Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.
I'm having flashbacks to your New Plant for the Grow Rack thread. I still don't believe that it's a Cattleya rather that a Catopsis.
Catopsis is also a viable name!
The one on the left is a gymnocalycium - and you're right, two of the flowers are real. As far as the one on the far right, I can't see any flowers, but the bright yellow body of the plant IS real - it is a chlorotic sport of Gymnocalycium mihanoviochii. Don't know the name, but it's related to cv "Hibotan" - the Japanese have developed a huge number of chlorotic sports of this cactus that are then grafted onto...IDK, Myrtillocactus, maybe? They all trace back to one grower noticing something special in a tray of seedlings - his fact action in grafting it has produced a hugely $ucceSSful horticultural oddity.
yes but said oddities tend to die off eventually and then the graft stock end up growing like a weed. the base piece is a super vigorous cactus
i eventually gave up trying to grow them lol.
