Lithops Stories has a whole bunch of colorful, and beautiful (of course it goes without saying beautiful), lithops in the midst of regenerating new leaves.

Don’t forget when your lithops are in the midst of doing this not to water them or the old leaves will choke off the new leaves. Ouch!

Luther’s purple Mimicry Plants needed some water. Hopefully he got them some water.

The Sacramento Cactus and Succulent Society took a visit to the African section at the UC Davis Botanical garden, and Bamboo and More was there to take all the blooming African Aloe pictures. It does appear to have been a sunny day, too.

I don’t know anything about this painting. I found it on the Instagrams, photo by justinclemons.

If we assume this picture was painted in Texas, and the cowboy is from 1892, given the outfit he’s wearing, especially the trademark red bandana, plus the length of the horse’s tail, we can determine this picture was painted in West Creek, Texas in July and from that we can determine the species  of the cacti the horse is trying to avoid: Opuntia cowboyensis ssp. redtexbandanensis.

Good to know!

Danger Garden visited the Cactus Ranch in New Mexico and photos ensued. I especially like the ghost Euphorbias. But there’s enough photos to last anyone in their right mind hours of fun and entertainment.

CactGuy has found some very “colorful” cacti and succulents, i.e. they’re painted or dyed and will not be long for this world. Poor things.

We’ve seen them out and around at the trade shows, along with things like blue orchids. Oh the horror.

Gardening Succs took a visit to our own Cactus Jungle and lots of pictures ensued.

Did they enjoy their visit?

Our verdict? This place is worth a trek–and we’ll certainly be back!

If this blog were a tumblr blog then all I would have to do is click the link to repost this item from the tumblr-o-sphere.

But no! I have a proper blog and all so I have to do a proper entry and calculate the settings and find the links and copy and paste and credit and so on, too.

And what is this really about? Christmas Cacti! Singing!

Also from CactGuy, this post linked from BatesNursery which was linked from Woseph of a mixed pot that Joseph planted up at the nursery. Things do seem to get around on the tumblr-nets.

Good to Grow has a Stanley, also known by some as a Kalanchoe luciae although we call it K. thyrsiflora. It’s been doing very well, thank you, on the kitchen windowsill.

Click through for all the Kalanchoe goodness.

Check out the picture of Keith in the pot.

I see that Plants are the Strangest People has a Stapelia in bloom. Very attractive! (To flies).

It turns out, miracle grow notwithstanding, you can grow that. Yay!

A third leaf appears on a 4 year old Sansevieria at Plants are the Strangest People.

When will the awesome ever end?

In the meantime, since you haven’t clicked over yet, here’s a picture of some Echeverias. Enjoy!

An Epiphyllum, recently from a cutting, blooms in Iowa, according to Plants are the Strangest People.

Lots of blooming photos from all angles!

I’m back! And now there are 4 whippets at the nursery for the next 3-4 weeks, so come on by and say hi to everyone.

That’s Benjamin and Jason, of course, and visiting from Santa Cruz is Benjamin’s sister Amica, and cousin Jaxx. Jaxx is the one facing forward.

Everyone can now do a happy dance.

I see The Indoor Garden(er) got his stapeliad back to DC safely from Berkeley. The story of how this Stapelia got to DC started in Iowa, where  Plants Are The Strangest People blogged about one first, leading The Indoor garden(er) to stop by the store and pick one up on his travels.

Iowa –> DC –> Berkeley

The circle of life!

By the way, we subscribe to the Stapelia theory of stapeliads, and do not approve of the Orbea theory of stapeliads.
