Re: Lachenalias

Skipping a growing season can be a sign that they didn't experience warm enough temperatures during the Summer. It gets into the 30Cs in my greenhouse most of the days in summer. Often hitting close to 50C on really warm days. I doubt this will be the cause. My plants remain in the greenhouse, bone...

Re: Optica rubra

Succulenta usually has Lithops optica "rubra" on its list every year. Don't know if you are in time to order some from the December seed list you can find at: https://succulenta.nl/zaadlijst/

Well worth a try anyway. Member go first, but non-members might still be in luck.

Re: Terry on TV

Maybe also of interest to some of you, at least those that can receive the public Belgian television channels; an episode on Myriam Bruneel-Desender. Maybe some of you will know her. She is as far as I know particular fond of Melocactus. The show will air coming Thursday on VRT 1 / Canvas at 20:40 C...

Re: Looking after Belgian collector

Maybe you are referring to the collection of Van Hoofstadt, in Wijnegemen, near Antwerpen? That is a private collection, but that collection has been broken up five years ago after this death.
