    +Emre Nickname Thanks so much for watching 🙂 Yes, Opuntia microdasy's do flower, but they are difficult to get to flower in cultivation, and I have had this plant for over 30 years and it hasn't flowered for me yet, but I am still optimistic that it will surprise me one day haha! Sending you an abundance of love and happiness from Ireland and have a WONDERFUL Tuesday XXXXX <3

    Hi Lynn, I wish I had some of my plants from 30 years ago but, when I moved them to Phoenix from Rhode Island, they all died! Big change in environment and, at the time, I knew nothing about it! Now I do though and I have 400 potted succulent and cactus plants here outside in Phoenix! I love your old plants and I can see how beautifully and carefully you have cared for them!

    That's a wonderful accomplishment Lyn! I only started with a few a year and a half ago and now have lots of seedlings which I've started on my own : gymnocalyciums, astrophytums, mammilarias, copiapoas, melocacti and even trying some uebelmannia pectiniferas. 7 babies left out of 11. They are very very very picky. Wish me luck! And also good luck with your move! Looking forward to those videos indeed! Thank you for your wonderful energy!

    My first cactus was a chameocereus and was neglected when I first got it and had a few 6inch bits very cool flowers!

    Dear Lyn, thank you for showing this wonderful old plants! It´s not always easy to keep the plants healthy and comfortable through all the years, especially when moving from town to town (or from island to island! Great respect for that masterpiece, and my best wishes for your next moving!).
    In Germany there is a cactus-nursery with a Echinopsis who is already 150 years old!
    My first cactus was a Chamaecereus silvestrii. It was the first cactus i really fell in love with, and it was a gift of my loved grandmother. She didn´t only give some cacti to me but also here great love to this wonderful plants. I ceep some of her plants now for 25 years, but they are already 40 and 50 years old. There is a really hughe Gymnocalycium baldianum, a Echinopsis subdenudata and – no question – some big pots with Chamaecereus 🙂
    I love the way how this plants accompany my familie and i hope they will stay with me and my descendants another 50 years…

  • Orchids & a Dutchy 6 months ago

    Wow! Congratulations on keeping them so healthy and happy for so many years! You were probably very young when you got them! I don't know what is the oldest plant I have, I must have lost track of them. The oldest orchid is from 2008, but my other house plants are older than that, but I can't remember when I got them. Have a great Sunday!! <3
