I'm mostly into cacti, aloes, and other heat tolerant succulents, and more recently hoyas and some tropicals. Phoenix, AZ. USDA zone 9b, heat zone 11.

No wonder I've never noticed the flowers on this! They're so NOT eye catching!

@philstalder I almost forgot! It's been neglected for a while and has a few dried up bits that need to be removed, but here's my Cylindropuntia ramosissima. It's got one branch that looks shriveled and dried up at ground level, and normally I'd have assumed that it got some rot and needs to be re-rooted, but now yours has me second guessing it. 🤔

Hmm, not to burst your bubble but I’m guessing mine is dead. I bought a bunch of plants from a botanical garden a while back and the manager there was new and inexperienced. I think they meant well but most died. I have a bees bliss sage and a lewisia that are barely hanging on but it doesn’t look good. Thanks for posting yours. 👍😊 @beatnikcrab
