    Great collection! I'm still seeking for a scopulicola and B. hertlingiana here :~.

    Just a thing 😀 : Parodia Magnifica (Eriocactus magnificus, @3:28) isn't really a desert plant. They grow in a humid subtropical* climate here in the south of Brazil – like others Parodia ssp., Gymno ssp, Frailea ssp, etc – at the grass and stone cracks** (apparently at the top of some hills). These days I found a great pdf about the southern species, but only in portuguese (so cant be useful to you 🙁 ) . However, great plants 😀

    Thank you for another great video, Lyn! 🙂 My Stapelia is doing very well since the repotting and since I started to water more frequently. I have a keen eye for my orchids for the most part, but what I need is one for my succulents and cacti to be able to meet their needs. You're videos are helping me a lot to know what to be mindful of and what to watch out for. :)

    Hey looks like i got sucked into your videos again! Whats that guy at 5:47 under the table that looks like a star fish? Looks like 5 separate cacti just seems crazy they all grew to the side like that… or is that normal for that plant? Thanks again for the exciting and informative videos!

    Thank you! This was helpful. Sorry to keep asking you, but what's the red little cacti at 6:00?

    Love it Lynnie – I got my first 3 little cacti the other day and I love them! 🙂 that was really useful cause I was just told water every 14 days in the book I bought some plant food for them too lol. Is that recommended?? xx

    Hello Thank you for info ! I want to ask you:
    Three months already passed of stratification magnolia seeds. Tomorrow I will plant the seeds, and I will plant them in the sun? I have noticed that in around the seeds was formed a little mold. but can be easily cleaned of mold, the seed is good. This mold is normal to be? or something I did wrong.

    Hello Lyn,

    Thanks for this video on watering cacti and succulents. I am still unsure about watering succulents like gasteria and aloes and have made mistakes in the past of under and over-watering. So when you water your aloe variegata in winter do you just give small amounts of water or do you soak the pot until it is dry again? Do you water from the top of the pot or from the saucer? Sorry to sound so simplistic but when you have a favourite plant the last thing you want to do is kill it through not watering properly. I try to use at least half grit to John Innes number 2 soil in the potting compost with all my plants so they don't get too wet. Any advice?

    Hi Lyn, thanks for the information. Very useful. It's warming up now here in the UK and I'm considering moving the cacti back into the greenhouse. Do you have a minimum night temperature in mind that would be safe for all cacti? I've already caused rot with two cacti this spring by careless watering and am feeling a little cautious.. Or perhaps you've done a video on this issue previously? Jennifer : )

    My aloe plant was doing great…now it is red and burnt and has some black spots on it..any suggestions? Thanks.

  • lovers4healthylife 1 year ago

    Wow so much valuable information must come back to watch again. I was just saying on another channel that I never know exactly how to water succulents ~ I think I always water too much. Thank you! :)
