I discovered this in the sole of my shoe when I returned from my recent trip. It’s about a half-inch long. Fortunately, it went into the rubber at an angle and thus missed my foot.
The Echinofossulocactus (or Stenocactus) seedings I started a couple of years ago are starting to look brainy.
Started from seed about 18 months ago.
Some recent pictures.
An unnamed Phalaenopsis hybrid. The label says
(Blessed ‘Walnut Valley’ HCC 76 pts
x Phal Talsuco Date ‘Max’ HCC 77 pts)
“Dtps” is the abbreviation for “Doritaenopsis,” i.e., a hybrid between Doritis pulcherrima and a Phalaenopsis. However, the genus Doritis has recently been lumped into Phaleanopsis, so the Dtps label is obsolete, and this plant is entirely a Phalaenopsis.
To see the three-dimensional images, cross your eyes so that pairs of images overlap, forming three images. Focus on the middle image, and the picture should snap into 3-D.
A “keiki” at the tip of a spent Phalaenopsis equestris bloom spike.
