Just a reminder about the Big Cactus show and sale at the LA ARB in Pasadena this weekend, 8/15-16/09
I posted some of these before, but these are some of the plants I entered in the show today, along with the ones posted at 198, hope to win a trophy or two


Haworthia truncata

This Dinterantus microspermus, is flowering, which is a huge advantage to sway the judges, possible trophy for best Mesemb

This Matucana madsonoruim also has buds that will open tomorrow, this picture was from a month ago,

Turbinicarpus minimus, bigger than the usual, may win division, but no trophy

Escobaria minima

Denise's Ortegocactus macdougalii

Mammillaria pectinata

This Dinterantus pole-evansii, in a new pot, and not flowering now, it just looks like a plastic golf ball

Heres a couple from the Copiapoa collection



too much?

That Arboretum show is great! I've gone there a few times. My old stomping grounds.

I was trying to figure out what our cactus was and thanks to this post, I think it's an Echinopsis Hammerschmidii. :-)

Bump. It's that time of year. My indoor stuff has been going off for a couple months, and the outdoor stuff in JT is starting to pop too. Beavertails are in bloom, silver torch have been blooming for a month and the others are getting ready.

The stuff up Rattlesnake canyon was a little further along, with some of the engleman's hedgehogs and claret cups already blooming.

Hello we just bought a "living stone" cactee and a Venus Fly trap a first :-). So we started research online and came across your amazing photos. Allow me to share photos I took at Huntington gardens in Pasadena greater Los Angeles next to the Arboretum
