Freddy, is a dish garden just planting succulents in a dish? do they have drainage holes?
Thursday night I led, with the rest of the club, a group of 35+ attendees in creating dish gardens. We started with a mini-lecture based on my article, the gave each attendee the chance and help to select plants, create and finish off their gardens, all in less than 1-1/2 hours. Thanks to all the clubmembers that participated. Hope we have some new memberships as a result of the class.
Thank you Grant.
Nancy, I will keep you posted on how they do. I have about 10 or 12 different varieties of Epis that I got as cuttings and they are all growing well here. I have them on my back patio where they get morning and late evening light, but shade during the hottest part of the day.
Debra, I would love to hear how the Epi 'Curly Locks' does for you. I have no luck with them here.
Yaaaayy!! I just planted these two days ago and they're already sprouting! Epiphyllum, Curly Locks.
Beautiful pictures Grant!
I agree with wih you about the flowers! Most customers believe these are actually growing out the cactus! Unfortunately, that sells the plants!
I'm with you on the straw flowers Debra. It drives me crazy. I have heard the same lament on several cacti web sites. It is so annoying; actually it is more than annoying. It is deceptive trying to sell the plants like that. Other than not buying such plants, I don't know what the answer is.
I just have to share one of my biggest pet peeves though. I hate it when they glue those stupid dyed straw flowers onto the cactus. Who do they think they're fooling? I recently bought a little cactus and in my effort to pull that stupid straw flower off I pulled several spines off the cactus with it, which, in my opinion. disfigured it a little. Plus it had gotten wet and bled red dye all over the cactus.
Nancy maybe you can talk to them and ask them to carry Cacti and succulents. You would think they would in Arizona. While you're at it, ask them when they get their new shipments in. I wasn't going to look at the them last time I was there because I had already seen everything they had and got what I wanted. But I decided to look anyway, and they had just gotten a new shipment in. So I got several new plants.
