Re: Seeds from Star Astrophytum

Thanks Diane and Ragamala. I think I will take your advice Diane. I may also see if any forum members have some seeds they would like to sell from their own plants. That way to a degree I could be sure of the source and what the seeds may turn out like.

Seeds from Star Astrophytum

Hi, has anyone bought any seeds from this company? They have an amazing variety. I'm very tempted but the 100 euro minimum purchase is holding me back at present!

Lithops flowering for first time

I bought these Lithops from Derek Bowdery last summer and the one on the far left at the Kent cactus mart in April. They are now all producing flowers. Amazing. My first Lithops flowering.

Re: Heater for tiny greenhouse Solved

My tube heaters are 100 watts and 125 watts. They keep an 8 feet long 2.5 wide, 2 tier wood staging around 3 degrees or warmer. I do bubble wrap the greenhouse walls though.
