    mato, that would be me right now. Someone gave me some five foot cacti in five inch clay pots and there was nothing to stop them when I re-potted them.

    If it's stiff spined you need to invest in a good set of leather gloves. Still handle carefully though. For softer spined "glochids" ones, use paper to prevent dislodging.

    The first is a Crassula cv. "Buddha's Temple" and the second I believe, off memory, is an Acantharhipsalis Monacantha.

    These ones are quite rare.... part 5

    Euphorbia Gorgonis, the Gorgon head medusoid


    Sempervivium calcareum cv. 'Oddity'. I apologize for the blue light... I put a supplemental lamp in to help keep my indoor plant window warm since temps are getting cold.


    A bizarre 'Pencil Cactus' hybrid between E. Tirucalli and E. Stenoclada that produces branches that resemble lightning bolt . I was very excited to have found this.



    Echeveria 'Pul-Oliver'


    Stapelia Gigantea


    I believe this is either Haworthia Truncata or Truncata x Maughanii


    Adansonia Digitata, African Baobab, the Tree of Life.


    Unknown Stapeliad. Huernia? Awaiting flowers....

    Quite nice! I would lean toward that Haw as likely being a hybrid as opposed to pure truncata.

    I do have a few plants you could use to fill out your collection a bit more. heh

    What?! Stuff I don't have?! :O Actually, there's a lot I don't have. Still looking for that trophy T. Bridgesii as well as a few Hummel's Hybrid varieties I would kill for.

    I also lean towards it being a hybrid... the form of it is just quite hard to identify. Doesn't really resemble a typical Truncata or x Maughanii.

    I don't get why this is considered "porn". To each his own, I guess lol.

    But on a serious note: Really nice looking plants!
