Yes, Aloe Vera is 1 example. Dragon fruit is another. In Mexico, Tequila is distilled from another succulent.

Hi Abby, your latest plant is a succulent - a very lovely specimen of Aloe juvenna! Where did you get it?

The left looks like Mammillaria elongata rufocrosea. The right is Mammillaria gracilis. Gracilis produces babies very freely. It flowers more readily than most cacti too. Soon you will lots of them. Both needs sun to do well and keep them well watered when they are actively growing.

That is very nice even though it has etiolated. In fact, it will etiolated no matter how much light you give it. Don't know why. Abby, I notice that it starts to plump up from the neck onwards which is good news. Can share what have you done to the plant? More light? Water less?

I think it due to change of env and more sunlight, I left it at home under a top hang window that have filter sunlight thru the glass pane, it become ice cream cone and no much white hair and more green, after I move it to office, more and more white hair growing and cover up the green and the top become more round.

As for water, almost every day if I remember, I should buy another one and put it there for direct sunlight and teat the result.

I think it dislikes heat since you mention it grows more white hair and rounder after you have placed it in your office. By the way, when you mean office, I presume air con office right? Also , you continue to water it every day right? Hmm.... Do you place it in a location with more sun? :blink:/> :blink:/> I also feel like buying one to try too. ^_^/>

Maybe wait for it to become bigger first before putting it down to root. This specie is very difficult to rot. Generally Mammillarias are not fussy. Just that some needs more time to be acclimatised to be able to bloom here. This one will bloom with no problems.

Sounds like it is a 'direct sun' cactus. Meaning it prefers outdoors and does not tolerate unilateral light. It likes overhead sun. Portulaca is a fine example which I cannot grow it well in my balcony no matter how many hours of sun it receives unless I hung it outside... :ph34r:/> Abby, could you buy one and grow it in your office garden to test out my hypothesis? :blush:/>

My one the white hair still short leh, maybe cos I place it under T5 lights. It only get suntan on weekends but not anymore due to the shift in the sun. Mine will bend toward the light especially during the short period out in the direct sun. And it's growing more babies.
