Re: Lithops hybrids

I was also true that much of the source material in the DNA paper was from "Atomic" nursery rather than having a good reliable link to the wild.

Re: XYZ cereus ID?

Re: Micropuntia gracilicylindrica

Very nice. I don't find these easy to grow; by which I mean I don't currently have a live one.
What is your secret?

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.
