In case you were wondering it is called the Lesser Kudu to distinguish it from the Greater Kudu. Not that the Greater Kudu is “greater” in any subjective way. Only “greater” in the purely objective criteria of size. The Lesser Kudu averages 60–100 kg while the Greater Kudu is 190–270 kg, so a big size difference. But it turns out that these are also not just smaller and larger relatives.
One of the most ancient species, the Lesser Kudu at one time was thought to be a smaller version of the Greater Kudu, but now is considered to be a more primitive species.
Continuing yesterdays theme, here are 2 more terrariums with airplants for your consideration.
Tillandsia fuchsii v. gracilis and I see we have a little bit of Reindeer Moss and some lovely rocks. Plus is that a shell i see? It is!
Tillandsia neglecta in a bit of a washed-out photo. Plus some white gravel as a base. And a couple fancy shells. We love shells! To be honest, we found a really good deal on shells last year but that meant to meet their minimum order we had to buy a LOT of shells. Shells for everyone!
It’s my last Obama in the Garden, as this is the last of our Obama toys for sale. We had a good run – 4 cases! 6 blog posts! – but I think we’ve seen enough of the Obama toy in our garden. Unless this one doesn’t sell this christmas season and then I may keep it and have him poke his head out in the garden for years to come.
We got in a new set of Dragons for the store – mostly for terrariumsbut also for the garden. I don’t like these as much as some of the other toys we’ve had, but whatever – here you go – some dragons in the garden.

Rikki has transformed a customer’s drawing into these amazing Succulent Wall Panels.
You can see the river running across the two panels near the bottom, and then some mountainous formations up higher.
Succulent terrariums are so hot they’ve made the very fashionable pages of GQ. Tillandsias too. The one on the upper left is by Roost and the one in the lower right is by Chive, and we carry both of them, right now!
It’s our new ceramic birds, now available for purchase at Cactus Jungle, (very reasonably priced!) in thyme.
I took the photo with Instagram. You can find me on instagram as bobdavisart on your smartphone app. That’s my other name! Why you may ask do I have another name? It’s my nom d’artiste. Did you also know we have twitter and pinterest too? Those links you can click on your browser or on your smartphone – they work! A monthly cactus email can come directly to your email. And finally we have facebook – always with the facebook. We’re so plugged in that I spend 12 hours of every day just checking the feeds. That’s a lot of thyme.
These aren’t succulent mixed pots… yet. These are handmade artist pots, by local artist Carey Cherney. These have proved very popular this year, and Carey just brought by a whole new crop. And Rikki already has her eye on about half of them for mixed succulent pots….
Don’t forget to click the photos for enbiggenments.
The blue is a new color from Carey. It’s a good blue color.
And I suppose it all goes without saying, except when it doesn’t, that these are all now available at the nursery, i.e. Cactus Jungle, now.
And now we have our newest line of toys we sell at the nursery.
Earth Block eco-friendly legos. Made in Japan, all natural and made out of Green Tea, Sawdust, Bark and Coffee Bean scraps, they not only have natural coloring they also have natural smells. Yes, it’s true, they smell delicious.
I made a Tillandsia Castle. I used the Green Tea blocks.
Rikki made a Tillandsia Robot. She used the Sawdust blocks.
