Hi all,
here are a few of my Arios to look over - not many, and the oldest is only 17 years, but I do like them.

Wow 17 years old!!! Now don't you wish you got into cacti when you were three?

Have you assigned where the cacti goes in your will?

I'll take a photo of the intermedius when I get home earlier enough and show it off closer up.
There's a guy on eBay that sells them, and a grower thatup in QLD/NSW that releases cacti once a year - bought a few bubs from him this year - but Arios seem hard to get. I've got a number of different vars as seedlings, but it will be a while before they look good - a legacy for the grand kids I reckon.

So long as you live to 100+, everything will be fine Very Happy

Sneaky arios flowers and then deliver seeds a year later - how slow is that?

Too slow for my liking, hey I have to get one to flower yet.

Thought this year was the year but now another year of waiting and hoping Rolling Eyes

Yeah, know how you feel - my fero cactus has never flowered in 20 years... thinking I might finally give him some fertiliser this year. Its had sun, shade, water... makes NO difference (oops this is not a ariocarpus topic) I am hoping that my Ario flowers this year - would be a real treat at 17years.
