It's the Cactarium!


In Palm Springs, there’s something called a cactarium – billed as the world’s only cactarium – which makes sense if you think of a cactarium as something with a sign out front saying it’s a cactarium because this is definitely the only one with such a sign. On the other hand it looks like a greenhouse with cactus and succulents in it to me.

Cactarium!

An interesting large and lumpy small form of the Myrtillocactus geometrizans Crest.

This is an interesting creature, a Walking Kalanchoe, or Kalanchoe synsepala. I see aerial roots in abundance. I wouldn’t pause under that for too long… Hahahaha!!!

A small carrion flower in the Stapeliad subfamily of the Asclepiad family (Asclepiadaceae). known as Huernia pillansii. They attract small ground insects.

And bigger….

It’s a giant stapeliad bud.

The flower opens and it looks like it’s probably Stapelia grandiflora.

That was fun.
