The E. suzannae has also done quite a bit of growing since its winter arrival. Just compare this to the photo on page 1.
Those dead flowers were on the tips in January.
The small cutting of E. flanaganii appears to be adopting a redder complexion with the exposure to more light ( I almost typed sunlight but that would be an exaggeration). Hopefully the adult/s will follow suit. I'm still tempted to remove the five large offsets.
E. succulenta is looking much better. I have wired a couple of the arms to get the shape of the plant a little better and try to stop them crossing. The new leaves are certainly healthier looking.
The two pots of seedlings are still ok. Growth is slow but steady. A little heat, I feel, would not go amiss.
Finally, the unrooted cuttings of E. obesa x globosa are no longer so. Every one I've checked now has roots.
E. stellata is now generating new leaves from the centre. Hopefully the frost damage will cover fairly quickly.
E. bisellenbeckii is slowly generating this year's leaves. It's very slow at it.
E. obesa x globosa are romping away on their new roots. They are losing the darker markings but it's easy to tell just how much they're growing.
I have also acquired E. ingens. The plant needs a good dose of TLC before I release it to the world. It was a very good offer (ie. very cheap) and I knew it wouldn't be specimen quality on receipt. It's re-potted in my own medium and had a couple of sprays, water only, it's a bit dehydrated. I've also ordered another species which I'm sure will be in a better condition. That was also a very cheap offer so there's more to look forward to in Euphorbia Corner.
The latest of the bargain Euphorbia has arrived. I think it's the tallest of the bunch. Now it needs to settle in and get the flower stems straight (they got a little bent in transit and they will form the "thorny" bits later. In the meantime here's a shot of a flower.
fredg: I don't think Roger knows how the Y's are worn during the ceremony

dvg: ...where the Ys are worn notwithstanding, there is a lot to consider - inside out, upside down, turned backwards, at halfmast, waistband rolled in or out, the tilt, and all of the combinations and permutations of these subtleties and others not mentioned
