Re: Do Pachypodium saundersii flowers have a discernible scent?

hi Nick, mine definitely had faintly scented flowers until I inadvertently killed it by moving to a too chilly greenhouse over winter. Sweet smelling is probably accurate but I had to get up close to be able to detect it. Each flower only lasted a few days but as the plant grew there tended to be pl...

Thanks Ian, but I get "no products found" in every category I click on. Wonder if it's because I am using my iPad ? Cheers
It's the same for me here Eric, using a Windows laptop

Re: Lithop seeds

I believe the Mesemb Study Group (MSG) still provides an annual seed list for members. You could consider joining them. I was a member a couple of years ago and bought quite a lot of different species of Lithops seeds, most of which gave excellent germination.

Re: What has happened to my Aloes?

Sorry to hear about your plants Mike. I'm no expert on Aloes but I recently lost my A. erinacea which similarly seemed to rot from the centre. I put it down to the extreme (for UK) hot weather we had during the summer. Hopefully somebody more knowledgeable on Aloes will have an opinion.

Re: Haworthia Pumilla flower stalk offsetting

I had one on a H. reinwardtii last year which I left attached until earlier this year and is now doing well on its own roots. I've had no more since unfortunately.

Naming conventions when selling plants

Could anybody offer any advice on what information it is correct to put on a plant label when selling. For instance, if I purchased a plant with a label stating something along the lines that the plant was "propagated from the XYZ National Collection" and later I sold offsets, or indeed the original...
