PostSubject: Some Cacti and Succulent id's   Fri Oct 24, 2008 7:28 pm

Hi all! Im new here, great site this is, very informative study
Im also new to cacti and i have recently recieved a few different sorts of cacti and succulents and i was hoping i might be able to get some id's on them here Very Happy

here are some pics, any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks in advance Very Happy

















Also, i want to transfer most of them to new pots with new medium, though what would be the best medium for cacti and succulents?
From what ive seen, im thinking some rocks for the cacti, and some soil/perlite mix for the succulents.
How does that sound?

Once again thanks in advance Very Happy

Welcome QR cheers

Had pics 1 & 2 and can't remember its name.
The cactus pics 2 & 3 is it a notocactus??
The purple one pics 5 & 6 is an Aoenium and is summer dormant it will look a little like its dying but don't push too much water into it. Just a drink everynow and then.
Pics 7 & 8 umm crassula maybe
Pics 9 & 10 ???? not sure. Where's CP when you need him, he will know Very Happy
Pic 11 Sedum
Pic 12 Jellybeans
Pic 13 Aloe juvenna

Edit:Oops forgot about the mix..........I personally don't use perlite in anything. I use a cheap potting mix as it is usually a lot more open and very coarse sand about 70/30. As long as it drains well you can use what you like and a lot experiment to get what suits them.

Pic no. 1 is crassula tetragona
Pics 9 and 10 are Graptopetalum paraguayense...

Yours is probably G. paraguayense "tricolour"

Anyone have a clue as to what these may be?

It looks a bit like a Rebutia to me. Although I must confess that it doesn't look too healthy...

Its a former member of the genus Aylostera, which is now included in Rebutia.
i can't offer much more than that but heres a link with the species and their new classification;

I'm pretty certain that I have the same plant at home... this seems to be a cactus that is often cultivated and sold at weekend markets. If I'm right, you'll probably get orange-red buds yielding yellow flowers.

^ yeah i see it at weekend markets on a fairly frequent basis.the flowers should be something along the lines of this if me n Lachy are thinking of the same plant:

but i agree with Lachy- sorry to say it QR but your plant does not appear to be in the best of health.

I agree with Lewis and Lachy...


Rebutia (Aylostera) fabrisii var. aureiflora is the likely little guy.
