At the end of last year, we went on a paddling trip along the Orang river and through the Richtersveld Transfrontier Park. It was great and is highly recommended! Here are a few pics of us on the river and some of the plants we found in the desert, including some very hardy looking cacti. Does anyone know which plants these are?
I rescued a group of sad looking cacti the other day (see https://www.sprig.co.za/2010/11/cacti-rescue/) and I am happy to say they are looking great and have found a new home in our courtyard.
My mom was getting rid of this box of scaffy cacti and, as I hate to see a pot plant go to waste, I decided to rescue them. A pair of gloves, some cheap ceramic pots (R16.00) and a bag of gravel later, they were as good as new!
