Re: Books: Aloe, Gasteria & Haworthia

There is also this https://cssa.myshopify.com/products/beginner-s-guide-to-haworthia-agave-and-other-succulent-monocots-by-tom-glavich but its rather basic, and not too many pictures, and not cheap. On the other hand, sorry this is off topic, but if anyone wants a good picture book of Echeverias, I ...

Re: Making a trip...

I went (quite a long time ago) on a trip organised in conjunction with the Succlenta conference. It was excellent, with Graham Williamson and Inge Pehleman as guides, visiting Namibia and thence down to Cape Town. They seem to be infrequent occurences, however.

Re: PM stuck in Outbox

I haven't been getting the notifications either.
