Wink Hello from Beijing, China

Hi everyone!

My name is Eria. I am from China and I go to school in California, United States. Glad to find this forum

The plants in my collection are mainly Crassulaceae (Echeverias, Pachyphytums .etc). There are also a few haworthias, aloes, and cacti. I don't own a lot of plants, but I would love to learn about succulents & geophytes from any families.

(btw, I am obsessed with learning information about Crassulaceae species & hybrid. I would be really really excited to talk with someone with same interest. )

Looking forward to meet awesome people and learn more!

Howdy!

I lived in Shanghai for half a year and I got severe frost bite on my toes. Now I only have 7 toes.

Even though I only have 7 toes... I have quite a few succulents. Lose some, win some!

Here's one of my favorite Echeverias...


Echeveria Epiplus Orchid - With Trimmed Bush by Epiphyte, on Flickr

It's the world's tallest Echeveria! I even attached an orchid to it.

Right now lots of my Echeverias are blooming. For example...

Echeveria coccinea
Echeveria gibbiflora
Echeveria Mahogany
Echeveria rosea

The Echeveria rosea is my favorite because it's an epiphyte.

Before I left to visit my friend for a few days, I tried to consolidate the Echeverias so that the hummingbirds would cross-pollinate them while I was gone.

Let me know if you want to see my garden some time! I live in Glendale which is pretty close to La Canada Flintridge. I have lots of cuttings and extras that I can share if you're interested in expanding your collection.
