    Hi Tamlin,

    the flowers of the plant I grow as Sarcocaoulon herrei were small ond not that impressive. Of course the plant already looks intresting without flowers:





    Ah, and look what Cacti I got by mail today:

    Thinking of the space I've left for new plants I better should stop looking for strange plants on Ebay....

    Cheers Joachim

    That Sarcocaoulon herrei is drop dead gorgeous! Now you are giving me the fever! I grow the Selenicerus as well, but it has never flowered. It is probably needs a good uninterupted dark period to set buds.

    Rubrarubra,

    Of the ones you have listed I really like Fockea edulis (except I blush whenever I tell people the name of my plant! I always get raised eyebrows!) and the Discorea is a plant I have longed for as well!

    Please post more photos <drool>!

    Hi Tamlin,

    FYI: it took some months, but now the S. herrei has flowered:

    I just have to grow this plant, it's a shame they are so expensive here. Thanks for sharing the photo!

    "Milk Tree" is quite an odd plant. Mine has a trunk about 5 inches in diameter. I like the plant, even though it isn't a caudex former. I have a real soft spot for any Euphorbia species I guess.
