Re: a friend looking for a plant id

Well, did you tell him that he's welcome to ask us HIMSELF?  Harumff!  ;+)
And I thought that was a Beatles tune b4 Cocker did it.
Anyway, I don't know nuttin' 'bout cactus, so....

However, I visited an MG's Greenhouse today. She's a local orchid retailer.
My, what a lovely sight on a grey, rainy day!  Upon arriving I told her a
'tip' about her Silver Squill.  "My What?"  Your Ledebouria.  "MY What?"
Had to drag her out and point it out to her.  She said she'd been wondering
what it was for years. She wrote it down.
