Mammillaria Elongata

Mammillaria elongata makes a small flower, but is an interesting cactus, making a clump of elongated fingers, if you will, like this young plant. Another bud is just showing to the upper right of this bloom.


Rebutia Miniscula


Rebutia miniscula, as the name implies, is not a large cactus, but it delivers a nice bloom. If you look closely, you can see red buds, so I will have more flowers to enjoy.

Senecio- I Think!


This is one of the succulents I am still working on identifying, and I have decided it must be in the senecio family. If you can help me out with a name, leave me a comment. The flower is interesting, and I like the shape of the plant. This is the first one for me, so I am anxious to see how it does.

Faucaria tigrina, Tiger Jaws

This tiger jaws plant usually blooms in the evening, closes, and then opens again the next morning and usually stays open for a day or two. This  plant doesn’t seem to be doing well right now, and I’m not happy about I’m afraid I am going to lose it. The picture below shows the same plant blooming in 2009.


Sedum, Unidentified !



I am guessing this is a sedum. I’m not sure sure what else it would be. The plant makes a nice mass of green and the flowers are small but delicate and pretty.  If anyone can identify it, let me know.

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana

Kalanchoe blossfeldiana is the kalanchoe that you will see in flower shops. The blooms come in a variety of colors and it makes a nice blooming plant for a gift. As the days pass and more of the buds open, this one will make much more of a statement.
