I Found An Amazing Photo-Enlarger

Too bad I didn’t find it sooner. But, I’m using it now, and for some of the cactus and succulent photos, a 200% enlargement really increases the detail and color. So, if you have old, little photos, this is the tool for you.

It’s at https://www.photoenlarger.com/ and it’s by Zygomatic. It’s free, and it takes about 5-10 seconds to convert a small photo into a big one. Four quality versions are offered, I always take the first.

A grouping of sansesvierias. The plant in the middle is Sansevieria cylindrica ‘Striated’. Far left is S. cylindrica with two stately blooms pushing 36 inches tall!! The flowers open only during the night so it is difficult to get a good picture. Far right in the photo is S. robusta.

Robert Streul: Sansevieria kirkii var pulchra flowers are beginning to open and if they would only open all at the same time, this would be way beyond spectacular. I took a tape measure tonight and held it just above the inflorescence and it measures 12 inches from flower tip to flower tip. Now I completely understand why people go gaga over the flowering of this species. The flowers open only for one day but there are many more to come.
