Re: New additions to my family

The seed in those fruit on the Setiechinopsis mirabilis is worth keeping and sowing. It grows like cress and it's good to have some spares as it tends to be a short-lived plant. It's one of the few self-fertile cacti, producing loads of seed (which may explain why it dies so easily).

Re: Novice needing advice on grow lights

Cacti won't need any light at all during their winter rest period. Although it's north-facing, your conservatory (assuming you're in the UK) may well be brighter than many of the windowsills on which people successfully grow cacti. Overall, I'd recommend not using lights, at least until you've let y...

My understanding is that precedence determines which should be used, therefore luisae, coming first, however wrong linguistically, is correct.
It's not that simple - see 60.1 and 60.8 https://www.iapt-taxon.org/nomen/pages/main/art_60.html

Re: Updated seed lists

Sorry, you're right. It appeared in a new post here http://kkplzen.eu/index.php/forum?view= ... =360#61491 when I looked this morning but I didn't check the context. Usually, posts are, much as in this thread, just notifications of new lists. Doh!
