This is my haul of plants from the annual cactus and succulent market I went to on Saturday! I got a lovely assortment of plants, including 2 nice sized plants of Brunsvigia grandiflora, some Opuntiads, the Albuca humilis in the 4th picture (the flowers have a nice vanilla scent), Rebutia ‘Pink Shadow’ in the 5th picture and Tillandsia capillaris in the last. Tillandsia capillaris is native to Chile, where it grows on native cacti like Trichocereus atacamensis, so I’m going to try growing it on my own Trichocereus plants! A very pleasing bunch of plants overall, I just need to wait for some sunny weather to repot them.
I also received a big box of cacti from Germany a few days ago which need tending to. Bring on the sun! While I’m making a post I may as well also point out that I’m trying to sell a few plants on ebay to clear out some room in my greenhouse, so if anyone’s interested you can see my listings here. I’ll be selling all kinds of surplus plants over this growing season as well. Apologies to those who live outside the EU, I’m not comfortable with sending plants outside the EU, as there can be all sorts of customs issues when sending plants outside the EU.
