Happy Wednesday chubby-plant lovers! I've been too busy to post any of the incredible pictures I snagged at the 33rd Inter-City Cactus and Succulent Show & Sale this past weekend at the LA County Arboretum! #OnWednesdaysWePlantPink flowers and foliage from some of these unbelievably stunning show plants !
I took too many pictures this past weekend! These are just a handful of my favorites in pink from Saturday! The first picture shows Tylecodon Decipiens, a rare and difficult to grow South African succulent that produces a natural neurotoxin as protection from predators. The second photo is an incredible cluster of Crassula Thyrsiflora Capitella or Red Pagoda. Next up is Eriosyce Occulta, a uniquely variable species seen growing in a few forms naturally. The next cactus I actually forgot to notate the ID for! Oops! I believe it to be some form of Mammillaria, but a species specific ID would be fantastic if anyone knows. The next cacti is not only a stunning Eriosyce Senilis, but it was nearly twice the size I thought possible for the species! Next up is a stunningly stressed Haworthia Truncata Lime Green, with more pink than green showing through right now! Next is an unbelievable Adenium obesum or the Desert Rose. This one really took my breath away! In the next picture you'll see a bowl overflowing with Lithops Optica Rubra in the most stunning, bright color I've ever seen on this species! Generally the Rubra subspecies of this plant is quite purple, and only carefully and expertly stressed will it showcase such brilliant magenta. Last up today is another stunning, rare Tylecodon, Sinus-Alexandri !
