I made a trip out to California the week before Christmas, where I spent a couple of days in Disneyland. It was difficult to get good pictures of the attractions — 10,000 oblivious people staring at their cellphones got in the way — but I was more interested in the plants there, anyway. Many that are greenhouse exotics in Kansas were growing outdoors everywhere in Anaheim. This batch of pictures reflects that.
The cactus and stapeliad seedlings are half a year old now. These pictures are all stacked focus, with from 26 to 92 images in each stack assembled in Helicon Focus. They are all much enlarged. The Gymnocalycium above is the largest of the cacti; it’s about a half-inch in diameter. Click to see it larger; right-click and open in a new window to see it larger still.
