Pachypodiums grow big and tall and spiny all over, and then we get to deliver them! Here you can see the crew preparing this 10 foot tall Pachypodium for delivery to Stinson Beach.

It may not be a cactus (Cactaceae), since it’s in the dogbane family instead (Apocynaceae) but you get the idea. It is however a Madagascar Palm, and it is very spiny underneath all the wrapping paper.

Jungle Cactus are some of the best winter cactus around. Along with the classic Christmas Cactus we have here a beautiful Mistletoe Cactus.

Rhipsalis salicornioides
Hanging epiphytic jungle cactus from Brazil, pendant to 6ft long. Not frost hardy, but will grow well in the Bay Area outside under an eave or porch overhang.

Mixed Succulents in a Barrel

The Rare Barrel brews beers, especially sour beers, which seems to be the latest craze. But here we see they put some succulents in a barrel instead. Delicious!

I am a paper engineer / set designer currently living in the South West. My work brings together my obsessions with collecting, detail and colour in the realms of 3D.
