Not looking for named Semps will take no name actually I prefer the old semps that everyone had back in the old day.

I would like to trade for my cactus. Deer proof.

These bloom in June they are hardy no special winter protection needed..

or I have a Red Epiphyllums i can share cuttings. They are easy to root just put them in the pot. It takes them a couple years to bloom is the only draw back but they are worth the wait.

Hi Cinta. I really don't want to trade for any new plants at this time, but I can send you NOIDs for postage?

Gosh Cinta, I love thos e blooms.
I'm getting more and more interested in both Opuntias and Semps.
TOo bad I am in Europe, thus a no-go zone Sad
Guess I have to find someone closer.
I got a bunch of Semps... I'd say the old ones that everyone has here without knowing what they are.
And an Opuntia that I'm quite convinced it's got a flower bud.
I hope I don't miss it (for the sake of pic, and my enjoyment)

Thank you all for response. I wish I could share overseas too.

Calin I hope you do not miss the bloom on your cactus. They are gorgeous when they bloom.


I have 3 epi now.

My Red one blooms in April

The white one that blooms in the summer was the of beginning of my obsession. Hilarious!

and this one has not bloomed yet. It will be year two. Maybe I will get a bloom this year.

Cinta, those are great blooms. I loves these blooms but as I had quite few blooms on mine and the plant itself isn't much to look at ... I traded them for something else.
I wish there was an Epi that stays small, upright and makes a lot of huge blooms and not just once a year as most do over here.
Am I asking for too much???

Yes Calin you are asking too much. Stop being greedy. Rolling on the floor laughing I justify having so many plants so I can have everything.

But really I get once a year by each one as I stated above they bloom different months. So you could buy a lot and use my excuse. You need a lot so you have blooms a long time. It is my story and I am sticking to it. Whistling Hilarious!

Oh well, when you have a small apartment, with all windows towards north, and long cold dark winters...you kinda need to cu deep in your "wishes".
A small disappointment, but not really-really.
My Opuntia bloomed but it's not like any of the above.
It's a pale yellow. But the bloom was huge. And COOL!
