Tillandsias, Mesembs, orchids, herbalism, art, pensive musings, and gardening on sand dunes.
Strange, but hey they look good, and they are obviously in a good mood!
I know! They have obviously discovered the secret to happiness in the universe!
Lovely! I'm now quite intrigued by Fenestraria and Frithia and have been looking around for some - but oddly enough, they're not easy to come by in South Africa! It seems I'll have to get some seeds from uh... *Sweden*. The truth is stranger than fiction. 8-o
That is weird. I wonder why they're not available in their native land? Is it that they are protected, or just not considered to be much fun to grow?? Could you become the first person to grow and sell them in S. Africa??
The mesembs in general are not that readily available here due to a limited market, you basically start off with a few general available stuff and then you go into seeds. Padda, if you are not in a hurry, I have a few seedlings growing.
So cute and perfect in your pot! Gail
Congratulations!! What a grateful plant :)
Thanks, Rika! Hope all's going well with your studies.
Very happy babytoes. What a treat! You're looking after them very well. What's your secret?
Lithopsland,I don't have a secret. But in the wild, Fenestraria live close to the beach, as do I. So maybe it's the sea breeze? They also love acidified water, we have alkaline water here, so I add 9 drops of rice vinegar to each liter.
