I have broached this topic in the past and never received a definitive response... Excluding Cacti, does anyone know which succulents are dog safe? Specifically succulents that will thrive in temperate climates.

 

Sorry for the thread jack but I thought this was close enough to being on topic.

 

You can always post on my threads. There aren't any dog safe succulents that I know of. I've done a deep dive (internet) and couldn't find any that are safe.

Excluding cacti, pretty much all succulents are safe as far as toxicity, except any of the euphorbias. Most will tolerate a light frost if they are not dehydrated. A harder frost (-30) can damage some leaves, but the main core plant is fine and will regenerate. Thicker leaved plants like aloes and large rosette formations can take more cold as long as it is not prolonged.....

 

Cats, I too want to see what the brown shmutz looks like.........

PJ, skywatcher is way more versed in this field than I am. Listen to him. If you need heirloom tomato advice, I'm your guy (or cats).

I don't see anything worth panicking over in the pics.

 

You'd expect to see that discoloration at the base just because of the light being interfered with by the stones at the base.

 

Higher than that and we start scrambling for an explanation.

 

Because the skin looks firm and sound I'll guess there's no reason for concern until it looks worse.

 

If it were looking weepy or weak or somehow opening up we'd talk about cutting and putting sulfur or cinnamon on it. But not now.

Damn that is a good question, i guess your best method would be, start with the type of succulent you have, and do the best i.d. you can, the. Google the hell out of it to see what type of chemical structures have been determined to be inside.
Hope that helps..

PJ,

I'm going to apologise and stand corrected. Euphorbias I knew about, but never realized that many succulents can cause nausea or worse. Gopher Spurge, and the orange coral like branched euphorbia are the worst, with the sap causing burning rash if it gets on skin.

I was able to find some better info here:

https://www.american...l-of-succulents

 

Which would be a good start point.

Upon further inspection, it's on more of the cactus than I saw earlier and one san pedro has it or similar discoloration.

Cats, I agree with pharmer that it is not a cause for panic.

I am going to add that I see the same skin separation at times on areas of my trichs, that does not seem to spread or cause any issues. I perhaps incorrectly always assumed it was a type of reaction to sunburn, or a protective reaction to insulate the internal structure from environmental stress points, but I don't know this for sure.

 

I see it much more often on the pedros growing at the river house in the desert, and most aways on the sun side.

I'm not prone to panicking. :tongue:

nice thread CatsAndBats

 

was an inspiration to see you do well with these so far, without being an expert at cactus

 

I have some from seed going at the moment, various Trichs... my L. williamsii didn't pop though, gonna try again with those

 

new to all this stuff, so cheers for the boost in morale. I might be able to make it work yet lol

 

happy growing
