Passion flower vines are jumping into high gear-
looking forward to some outer-space flowers from these!

Good to see this tree Opuntia flowering here-
to bad I had to cut it in half.

This guy is ready to bloom,these are not particularly
hardy and this guy has had a long road to get to blooming size....
I started with 5-6 all planted on the little rise
in the center of the cactus garden-this plant is
one of the pups that fell off the dying mother
and rolled down to its current spot-this is the only
one to live so,it has some hardiness!

Top of the Tricho-already half a foot of growth with
temps just now warming up.

Little Takil is still on the mend...if you look close
you can see a tiny petiole and a half leaf,the next will be a healthy little "spear"...ideally..

      Can somebody please help me out, I am currently growing W. Filiferas, T. fortunei, R. Hystrix, C. Humilis and a couple butias. I lost my biggest W. Filifera this last winter due to fungal infection, I’m wondering what do you use? Daconil or Copper Fungicides? Also what brand of Anti-dessicants if any do you use? Any input will be greatly appreciated. 
       
      thank you

      Howdy, I had a plant nursery in Texas for a decade until 2010, called CollectorPalms. 

      I have considered restarting with “Texas Tough Plants” ; lots of native plants and ones that do well here and similar places. Right now it’s still a dream, but I have the availability to get it up and running in a year. I have experience growing & shipping small to large palms. Others, I may need some input.

      Why, I think it’s needed, it’s difficult to get certain plants. 10-20 years ago had a lot of good nurseries that are no longer... they retired mostly. Also the recession of 2008 hurt a lot of nurseries. I also have no local competition. No other cool Nurseries. 
       
      Question to all.
       
      What would you like to see available at the nursery? Specific palms, agaves, yuccas, cactus, trees etc... sizes & prices?
      Thanks for the ideas. I have a list already in mind, but want good feedback from others. 
      Everyone reading this, give me your thoughts! Please! Thanks in Advance!
