Re: [IGS] succulent species

The picture was in the before mentioned book. IMHO it is one of the most
stunning plants I have seen. But then again I like for my plants to have
that otherworldy look. Right now I have 31 caudiciform succulents along with
five different kinds of seeds I planted the other day, plus I ordered five
other plants from great petulema desert the other day. I guess their like
lays patatoe chips I just can't have one. I do not know how you feel about
experimenting but you might try potting up in 10-20 gallon containers as it
stimulates free root run and can give you extremely remarkable caudex
growth. I just recently learned this from the owner of gpdesert who has
gotten truely remakable results with this practice. Plus for people who live
in weather like I have here it is better than putting them in the ground.
