PostSubject: Collection Rainer Pillar - under the rooftop   Collection Rainer Pillar - under the rooftop Icon_minitimeMon Feb 11, 2019 7:51 pm

Since September I'm studying in Osnabrück, 250 km away from home and my cacti. This weekend, I wistfully visited a collection of an AfM-member living there. He is 78 years old and has been collecting Mammillaria's for more than 55 years. His collection is very special not only because of the variety of ancient Lau and Rep plants, but also because it is located in the attic. Yes in the attic, but rebuilt, instead of roof tiles are huge acrylic sheets on the side surfaces of the roof. The pictures are just taken with my phone so its not very high quality, but I think you'll enjoy!

Good morning,

wonderful, thanks for the pictures!
And of course thanks to Mr. Rainer Pillar for the beautiful plants!!!
Unfortunately, as is often the case, old collections have a repotting deficit.
For us old collectors, repotting is not easy.
And the place is limited. . .

Hope you can visit Mr. Pillar again when many of the plants are in bloom!


Best wishes

K.W.

Great report.
Cacti in the attic!
I have a lot of technical questions.  Smile.

All the best Jonathan!

Wonderful plants, but indeed in need of more space. I think most of us can relate to that problem!

Thank you for the positive response, I'll pass it on to Rainer. Very Happy
Yes, he also told me that repotting is getting more and more difficult in old age and with larger plants.
If you have questions, I am also willing to talk to him.
His collection is just 10min away from my apartment, I will defenitly take some pictures of flowering plants in the next weeks.

What an excellent and interesting collection! Thank you, Jonathan for showing what must be just a small part of an important collection, and pass on to Herr Pillar my thanks for letting you share this with us.
