New plants

Los Angeles, CA(Zone 10a)

Just received a big box from Miles2Go.com. Spent the day cleaning the backyard to try to justify putting all of these in pots and taking even more space. I've peeked at a few of these and they look good! Tomorrow is potting day.

What fun! Hope we'll get to see pictures.
I've been to too many shows lately, am hopefully going to the CSSA show at the Huntington next weekend, and am itching to do some online ordering for the first time. But I've made a pact with myself that I have to get my succulent display and potting areas cleaned up first and then new plants will be my reward for completing this nasty and long overdue chore. Time to get busy!

Wow you will busy with those for a while. I love Coryphantha cactus. Take some pics when you get them situated.

Anniesfollies: I'll probably go to the CSSA show, too. Actually I might volunteer to help set up. I need to call Barbara Hall; I think she's coordinating volunteers.

Windsor, CA(Zone 9b)

In my ignorance I do not know what all the initials at the beginning of each plant mean. Some different plants have the same first initial I think, also. PS I really like it when plant photos and names are together so I know what the heck is being shown or discussed. Xuling (off the the ignoramus's head!!)

Arlington, TX

The initial is the genus name, as in L. for Lithops and so on. Some I know others I am not sure exactly what group is being referenced.

PS there were simply too many to photograph, though if any strike your fancy, just cut and paste into Google and you'll get Miles's page with a photo. Now that 2 or 3 orders from Miles are fully potted and enjoying filtered sun on my benches, maybe I'll get around to photos at some point. There are dozens of plants though, so I'm not sure how to start with these latest batches.

PPS You can use the same Google trick anytime you see a genus initial and species name. Usually there will be only one type which suits the context.

Let me try one…N. occulta typed into Google…hmm, not a very helpful example. In the entire first page of results, only the last result is Neochilenia occulta.

Here's a better idea: Google X [genus initial] species succulent
If you try that with N. occulta succulent, the very first result is from our pursuit:

N - Eriosyce occulta - Coromandel Cacti, 4000 cactus succulents ...

Lordy amanzed, I didn't mean to put you through all that work, and my comment about photos was a general one, not critical of you and your list. I don't express my self well sometimes. I got an email reply from my brother this am, a rather heated repy, because I had not stated clearly what I meant. It was cleared up easily. Lack of good communication seems to be the human condition (well mine anyway). BUT now that I see your list I want you to send me about 16 of your plants please, all potted and ready to go. Speaking of which I have to go put 3 days of cactus plant and flower photos into their proper folders before I get way behind. And one day I really will post pics of all the new flowers this year. They have been incredible both because of their age and due to the good warm and hot summer weather. Then if it isn't too late I will study some Portuguese. Xuling

Ha! No worries. It was a simple matter to cut and paste the preceding post and, since the order was so recent, all of the genus names were easy for me to recall off the top of my head.

The plants look great, though I can tell I'm straying deeper and deeper into cactusland. Some really interesting plants! A lot of Miles's plants bloom for me literally the day after I get them into pots. Mammillaria deherdtiana, for instance, had several deep purple flowers for me today. I highly recommend it. And the blooms are large for a mammillaria.
