    It sucks that there is never alot going on in cacti and succulents. I love cactus they are my favorite plants. I have tons of them, my collection is huge though it dwindles over every summer as I trade and give away alot and then build up new plants again. My plants are ready for summer except the temp is not ready for them. Perhaps I will post some pics. If anybody reads this. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Succulents and cacti are nice plants, but it's perhaps a CP distorsion, but after growing bogs plants for 8 years, try to switch on dryland plants without watering too much, it is a bit hard

    Nevertheless, Asclepiads recently took my attention with Huernia , Stapelia, etc... A new collection just begins

    Well, you have ME, LOL. I have more than a passing interest in succulents and a moderate interest in cacti, especially the rare forms. So, are you growing any of these Ariocarpus species, Obregonia or any of the Discocactus? These are my favorites I think, although I also love the Astrophytum.

    Jungle cacti are really wonderful species. I have lost most of my Rhipsalis collection but these were my favories followed by the Easter Cacti forms.

    In succulents, I have a majpr interest in the caudex forming stem succulents, especially the Madagascarian species.

    I have to set limits on my plant interests which are extensive. I would also like to cultivate the Gesineriads (hope I spelled that right), Orchids, Bromelliads, and Amaryllids but my space restrictions wont allow for this. What I really need is a job in a major conservatory, hee hee.

    Cacti flowers are beautiful, and I love their forms. What I do not love are the spines! After years of injuries (some of frightening proportions) I have largly abandoned this family of plants....but if you ever hear of a sweet deal on an Ariocarpus fissuratus that isnt a scrawny seedling please let me know. I have always wanted to meet and grow this plant.

    The tiny stickers your refering to are called glochids, they grow out of the areole.

    And yes, they can be quite a pain (pun intended)
