New plant
« on: August 12, 2020, 06:05:58 AM »
Yesterday we acquired a new plant. We had driven up to Nicosia for something and took the opportunity to call in on friends and fellow MGS members, Demetrios and Sarah Michaelides, to drop off some rooted salvia cuttings we'd grown for them. In return we received a small plant of a variety of Pereskia. I think it may be P. sacharosa but I can't be certain. Looking forward to it growing to flowering size.
Cyprus Branch Head. Gardens in a field 40 m above sea level with reasonably fertile clay soil.
