Good evening dear cacti friends,

a few photos from 24.July 2018.
And something that always makes me very angry.
People sell plants, freshly repotted, new substrate, new pot. Doubles or triples the price.
And that's what it looks like ( see photos Bonus-Track).
Plant friends who do not immediately repot the new plants, they are surprised that the plant does not grow.
Normal buyers wonder that the plant is dead after one year.
These will never buy a cactus or a succulent again.
Pity for our nice hobby. . .

But now a few flowers. . .

And they didn't even try to break the ball of peat the plant has grown in...

It's a shame people try to deceive others like that. I guess demand for succulents is so high these days those sellers don't mind losing customers.

Me and Teresa sometimes get asked why the plants we sell are more expensive than the ones you can get at supermarkets or flower shops, and there's no way we can explain to them the difference of buying a plant that was grown "hard" in a proper mix to those things grown in peat.

Dear Jose,

these plants are kept in incubators in Holland.
(It is called a greenhouse, but it has nothing in common.)
If the plants get into the right life, they will not survive.
With the masking the sellers try to hide this.


Best wishes

K.W.




Good evening dear cacti friends,

in another forum, a plant friend asked for a Ferocactus and animals.
Here is my answer with photos from Arizona April 2015.

What a wonderful plant! It must be huge! I love the dichotomous Mammillaria, and that M. muehlenpfordtii is magnificent.

Good evening dear cacti-friends,

a few photos from today 4. August 2018 - this and that. . .
and thirsty guests, why my father was right again and that's why I'm not angry with him. . .

When we moved, the fountain in the garden or on the terrace was always ready first.
A house without a well for my father unthinkable! Yes, and for me too. . .
