Amer, I enjoy your info very much! And it isn't wrong to speak with authority if you know what you're talking about.

Dominic, that bouganvilla is just outstanding! Oh! to have such a plant!

Comment by Dominic Florio on April 3, 2013 at 10:14pm

This was posted on Facebook by some garden page.  They say they do not sell this plant.  It is a grafted cocktail bouganvilla.

Amer, I'm behind on reading and commenting. I'll try to catch up later. Nice echninocereus.

Comment by Joan Denoo on April 3, 2013 at 2:00pm
Oh! my dear Amer! you provided us with sound information based on expert advice! Expert knowledge and personal experience provides needed information. Whenever I have problems with plants often I did not give them what they needed.
Your photos provide so many different examples of lovely cacti; they give me a nice boost to start my day!

My echinocereus getting ready to bloom

Joan & Dallas, I am sorry, my last post were too instructive, looks like an expert opinion. But there is a story behind this. Being in knowledge of that perhaps you will forgive some of my authoritativeness. 

In the beginning of my collection, I bought from nurseries and professional collectors. I tried to be smart by noticing what kind of pots and growing medium they used. Also took some help from internet readings. I lost a lot of plants in the process. I bought only frustration from all the effort, time and money I spent. This went on for some time.

I only tasted success when I understood that there was gradual move of years towards use of those mediums. I introduced my cacti to poor and well drained soils and to my amazement when plants had healthy roots, they produced the results I wanted even in the poor mediums. I had to compromise very little in terms of growth rate.

I didn't want this happening to a friend, thats why perhaps I became too instructive unconsciously. Thanks for reminding.

Sentient, you comments sound spritely. Hope you feel stronger soon, even if your pace is slow. Frankly, I kind of like slow. I see more.

Amer, I enjoy your comments very much, and like the way information can pass so freely between all of us. We indeed are lucky to have such technology!
