  • Here’s a close up of the unique growth of ‘Ming Ting’! It’s so cool how different each plant can end up looking! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🔴Scientific: Cereus validus (forbesii) f. monstrose⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔴Common: Cereus “Ming Ting” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🔴Care tips: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱Water - Like most cacti, water throughly and allow to dry completely before watering again. It’s better to underwater than over water because cacti can rot with too much water. Reduce watering in winter months when plant is not growing much. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱Humidity - Low. Cacti are accustomed to dry desert like conditions. High humidity can lead to rot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱Soil - Well draining soil. I use a mix of turface:crushed granite (about 1:1). I personally don’t like peat based soils because when peat dries out, it is very hard to get it to become wet again. When cacti are allowed to completely dry out in peat based soils, water just runs along between the pot and soil and out the bottom instead of actually wetting the soil and roots. The turface:crushed granite mix can be very heavy so sometime I will add pumice to help reduce the weight of the pot. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
🌱Light - Direct to partial sun. Like most cacti, Cereus prefers bright, direct to partial sun to thrive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here’s a close up of the unique growth of ‘Ming Ting’!

  • Købte denne smukke rumdeler hos @von.otto her for leden, og ville hænge den op over sengen. Men billedet i hovedet og væggen fungerede ikke som det gjorde i virkeligheden. Øv. Men det kender I vel også engang imellem, ikke? #dontletmebetheonlyone 😅🌿
Så nu er hovedet kommet i blød igen. Så wish me luck 💁🏼‍♂️🤞🏽 #imgoingtoneedit Købte denne smukke rumdeler hos @von.otto her for leden, og ville hænge den op over sengen.

  • Not your typical Easter post but on a recent visit to an open NGS Garden @elaineportch  I spotted this Pine tree. This is a Wollemi Pine or the Dinosaur tree.  This is one of the worlds oldest and rarest trees the scientific name is Wollemia nobilis from the Araucariaceae family.  These are a 200 year old family of trees discovered in 1994 200km west of Sydney Australia in a rainforest gorge.  The oldest know fossils of this tree is 90 million years and current numbers in the wild are fewer than 100 mature trees with the largest being 40m tall and a trunk diameter of 1.2m.
Since having my daughter my memories of my childhood and fascination with dinosaurs has bee re-awakened so this tree might now be on my shopping list :) Not your typical Easter post but on a recent visit to an open NGS Garden @elaineportch I spotted this Pine tree.

  • My favourite species of fern: Elaphoglossum peltatum for #WhatsHangingWednesday. It's very variable in its frond form, with a handful of varieties going round in cultivation right now, this one being the most common. It's a great terrarium species as it doesn't get bigger than this, grows terrestrially as well as epiphytic and given a little time can cover your entire back wall.

Pictures 2 and 3 show a new leaf with rhizome, and a fertile frond covered with spores. My favourite species of fern: Elaphoglossum peltatum for #whatshangingwednesday.
