Meanwhile in the Greenhouse - Martlothistella uniondalensis
I promised my brother ( the one who loves cacti ) that I.d post a picture of my Marlothistella uniondalensis , to see how it has grown , over what must be about six years since he gave me the little rooted cutting from his .
It has become one of my most treasured succulents , I look forward to seeing it's pink daisy flowers which appear between November and February .
It is a Winter growing mesembryanthemum from the Little Karoo in South Africa. Although said to be cold hardy , I keep mine in the greenhouse .
I,m going to take a closer look at it tomorrow , with a view to getting a rooted piece off it to give back to my brother who has lost his .
I also read somewhere that the caudex / fat root of this plant can be raised up , to make it look even more cool ...so I will take a look at that and see what I can do .
Anyway , I love having this one in my collection , its a little charmer .
Have a great week all ! :)
