    Those cacti pots are one of the most brilliant things I've seen in a while.

    Hah! Thanks! Those are actually just little dishrag holders people usually keep near their sinks. I pick stuff like that up all the time from yard sales.

    Glad you enjoyed! Proves I'm not keeping them all alive just for myself

    Some stapeliads blooming in my hobby greenhouse:

    Orbea variegata, the first stapeliad ever discovered. Justus Heurnius, a Dutch missionary, collected it in Africa and sent it to Europe in 1639. Heurnius is also the namesake of another (albeit misspelled) stapeliad genus, Huernia.

    Stapelia hirsuta

    I've spent a lot of this winter preparing to grow more and more CPs. I'm hoping to get out there as a Sarracenia breeder and catch up to some of the well-known ones who've been doing this for decades.

    So, for xmas, my lovely wife let me get some galvanized metal benches at an estate sale. A couple were liquidating their orchid greenhouse--it was sad to see--but I picked up a lot of awesome new stuff. I have another Sarracenia growing area that isn't in the photo, but come spring a lot of this space will fill up with seedlings as well as serve as the summer home for the cacti and succulents in the nearby greenhouse. The trash cans, in case you're wondering, hold my various blends of soils.

    Adromischus cristatus

    Mammillaria hahniana, the Birthday Cake Cactus

    Astrophytum ornatum

    Mamm. geminispina

    Mamm. spinossissima hybrid

    Hechtia bromeliad, Myrmecodia tuberosa, and my "test Nep," a ventrata. So far it's handled lows of 40F regularly all winter long. Last year's "test Nep" had cold spots everywhere and eventually died. I have an N. miranda in there too, which although it halted growth has remained perfectly healthy. I am not sure what I'll do if it turns out I can grow Neps at home! The fight for plant space would become unimaginable!!

    Agave lophantha, and Brasilopuntia brasiliensis in the background

    Stapeliad compot.

    Haworthia compot

    Davallia species, a White Rabbit's Foot Fern

    Dews next to lithops. I love the contrast between moisture lovers and drought lovers!

    tons of other crap. I need to build real shelves. Been getting by on plastic ones.

    Check out the spout on my milk jug. That is a marvelous invention.....


    I think these are D. roseana, from the one roseana plant that survived outside this summer (thanks Paul!)

    D GIGANTEA LIVES! My favorite dew... I really have one!! It's friggin' unbelievable! I know it's just a 4mm long shoot, but holy crap! There's an unsprouted tuber too as well as a blurry 3rd in the extreme bottom left. I mark them with cactus spines.

    D MENZIESII ALSO LIVES! I love these things more than is reasonable. I cannot wait till they get bigger. The floodgates of tuberous dews will open this summer. I am going to collect them by the boatload....

    D. hookeri!

    Another pot of hookeri! Hookeri... weird name huh.... read about Joseph Dalton Hooker! One of the most brilliant botanists of his age. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Dalton_Hooker

    filiformis "Florida Red"

    filiformis, FL Red, tracyi, madagascariensis, admirabilis, x californica, dielsiana, natalensis, spatulata, burkeana (not in any order)

    Platycerium bifurcatum

    Cylindropuntia imbricata

    Golden Barrel Cactus... you know, I really have to watch my step in my greenhouse... mistakes are costly....

    Oreocereus celsianus.... one of my favorites. I love all the wooly cacti.

    Wooly, you say? Well, if it isn't Cleistocactus strausii!

    The columnar cacti get grouped together
