South Bay Cactus and Succulent Show Haul

The first thing you saw when you entered the room was this hawothia table that made me go O_O and then leave all of my cash there. I didn’t get all the ones I wanted because I would have been broke, but I settled on these three…

As you can see I love haworthias with windows! I actually already have a Haworthia cymbidiformis, but it is the variegated form. I love how lime green this variety was.

I also got some cactus that I thought looked interesting, but I really don’t know any specifics. I kind of treat the all the same, I water when soil is bone dry…

Cactus certainly are strange looking. I’m starting to get into them more, but they’re awfully slow growing. I got two of them today, one from the grocery store and the other from a local garden center.

So many Cacti in bud! I’m so excited 🙂 I made a planter, so they weren’t just randomly sitting on the floor outside in their plastic pots. I was starting to look like a hoarder…

Lastly, I also got an Agave Victoria-Reginae, which grows up to be a beautiful plant, and a Crussula Dorothy. I love the architectural look the Agave develops.

ohohoh…I also got an Adenium arabicum. Hopefully it goes well, the leaves are already getting bigger…

On a side note, there are some cacti blooming 🙂 They are always so impressive…

These are Chamaelobivia ‘rose quartz’ and a NOID mammillaria.

 

Any cool purchases lately at cactus shows?? Show season is certainly in full swing now!
