I was thinking about starting a smelly flower army and thought I would start off here and see if anyone had some cuts that they could possibly sell? Thanks in advance.

Peace

Ebay has some now and again, and also I know I've seen a couple on and off at Hamilton's WOC.

If you asked last season I would have had plenty.

I had this orbea variegata but during the winter it was very limp and I didn't know what was wrong with it so I repotted it when there was a warm period.
Bad choice. The next week it was freezing and most of the plants (I divided it) got severe frost damage then rotted.
I had about 15 individual plants of it and now I've got only four remaining.

Cuttings of at least orbea variegata should be commonly up for sale since it's pretty common. I can't offer mine though because if I disturb them they will probably die. They haven't recovered yet. Good luck finding some.

Thanks Mitchell, I apreciate it either way. I just normally surf the boards before going onto ebay or an online vendor ect.

Has anyone had any experience growing these from seed?

2 years ago my plant produced seeds so I sowed them but they soon died because I didn't water them and they were outside in an open tray.

They did have pretty much 100% germination and germinated fast.

Can't tell you much past that stage.

I sowed them as soon as the seed pod opened in general cactus mix and watered them in.

've thought of trying some of those, butI have so much else going on, and I have (no exaggeration) thousands of cacti, nearly a thousand lithops and bunch of carnivorous plants too. So I have just about enough to keep my hands full without taking on any new kinds of plants. They are interesting to read about and I do like seeing the photos that other people post of their collections.

By some of the photo's you have shown you seriously have your hands full. Is it just a hobby IXOXI?
There are actually a few different varietys of these plants, also.

I am determined!

Not a wholesaler. I am looking for mutants, and working on cultivars. It's a numbers game and you gotta be in it to win it.

I've got a mini collection and can spare some cuttings of Orbea variegata & Stapelia hirsuta.

I've not grown any from seed. It's all been either bought or taken from cuttings.
