More Pictures of Aquaculture Collection -- July 2000
Here is a set of pictures showing all the aquaculture boxes in my collection in July 2000. For comparisons, see my page on Comparing Aquaculture Boxes.
| ||A few lovely specimens are visible here, including a Mammillaria matudae (top left), a Ferocactus emoryi, two Notocactus specimens (bottom left and top right), a Melocactus and a Gymnocalycium baldianum (bottom right). |
| ||This is a box containing younger specimens. There are a few Echinopsis or Echinocereus-type specimens, a Mammillaria and a couple of Myrtillocactus specimens. Without proper surface preparation, the orange gloss paint has begun to flake off. |
| ||This box is full of Mammillaria specimens. There are also two Ferocactus or Melocactus-like specimens, and a Copiapoa (top right). |
| ||A box with less than spectacular specimens. There is an Astrophytum (top left), a few Mammillarias, a Myrtillocactus (middle), a Notocactus leninghausii (middle bottom), a juvenile Echinocactus grusonii (bottom right) and a Gymnocalycium denudatum seedling (bottom left). |
| ||This box from a hydroponic vegetable kit. The Notocactus magnificus was growing so well I could not resist cutting the head off and potting it up as a prime specimen. Other specimens here include two Echinopsis and five Mammillarias. |
Here are two pictures taken in October 2000.
| ||This is an 8 hole aquaculture box. There are two nice Notocactus, two ribbed specimens (one is definitely a Ferocactus), and one Gymnocalycium. An earlier picture was taken in July 2000. |
| ||This is another 8 hole aquaculture box. The base of one Mammillaria whose body has been cut off is visible. Another three are also Mammillarias. Two are ribbed and one is a Copiapoa. An earlier picture was taken in July 2000. |
