E. stelata - decided to turn it on its side - seen one like that with the leaves hanging down, looked great.

Nananthus alooides - not normally seen as caudex, but this one I have had for a number of years and it has a nice thick caudex now..

What a great looking collection. Thanks for posting!

They are beautiful. Like how you potted them.

Thanks sally - I am slowly getting the collection's back on track. For the first year after our move it was all about keeping them alive, now I am more confident on the environment, I can start looking at sorting out the pots and making them a little nicer to look at...

Decatur, GA

Thanks for showing us your plants. They look great in their pots.
I start to wonder how you manage what seems to be a large collection. Its impressive, both the number of plants and how well cared for they are. Any secrets? ^_^

Nope - always fiddling is the only secret. I have either a ready mix soil in a closed bucket or the different ingredients close-by, so I always fiddling, transplanting, sowing seeds, whatever...currently transplanting all the baby aloinopsis, titanopsis...pretty happy with them! Sowed another 90+ species last week, which is germinating...always busy with something.

Nice plants, man. Did you fertilize those Tylecodons or are they just naturally high on life? :)

Here's my Tylecodon in the process of waking up for the fall. Very, very slowly.

Did not fertilize this year, only got them early this year and put them in new soil, thought that would be good enough.

Casting a dragnet for old (ish!) threads I'd missed and love these particular plants. But Rian, you provide a seemingly endless stream of delights for the eyes and imagination.

I aim to please! Thanks zed.

San Diego, CA(Zone 10b)

Great looking plants Rian! I really like the Euphorbia. Wow, 90+ seeds sowed in a week. That's dedication. Can't wait to see more baby pictures. Your recent postings have prompted me to look at Silverhill's offerings. I think I am going to place another order soon.
