Probably on the SW gardening Forum: http://garden.org/forums/view/...

I saw your request earlier but didn't post because I don't like thorny plants. Many years ago I had a cactus collection and got tired of getting jabbed by those thorns, LOL. Back in the 70's I sowed a packet of cactus seeds and had the cutest little plants but then we had a wet, cold winter ... and they expired.

It seems to me that there are many great pictures of succulents being posted so there might be some interest. I've had small collections of cactus as house plants in past years and enjoyed them. I took some pictures today at a Utah Nursery. I would watch but am not certain I could contribute much.

Great photo's Paul! If you know the identities of any of those plants I hope you will consider uploading them to the database.

Well the first two are grafted cactus that may exhibit combinations of forms not found in nature, depending upon the imagination of the propagator. Big Grin

The colorful Cacti in the first picture are Gymnocalycium mihanovichii. There are lots of varieties listed.
