Re: Need to source type of greenhouse vent fitting

I once had a system like this. Either "Sun" (bought about 1990) or "BACO" (bought about 1975). I doubt either existed into the 2000s.

Re: How much water to give echinopsis seedlings?

Tony, I don't suppose this is down to you and I don't know who it is but can't we reorder them? This is a key resource from the society and baffeling to the uninitiated?

Re: dioscorea elephantipes

I've had success with a few species, 3 I think, and just did my normal thing - so they were in pots that got light.

Gasteria ID, please

HI, I got this Gasteria from a local garden shop. It is vigourous and I like the white spotting and prominent keels on the leaves. I'd be grateful for help with identifying it.
