Re: How are your seeds going?

I had 90% germination rate on some Ariocarpus japanese cultivar seed's Tina gave me. Suddenly last week they all dried up and vanished into the potting mix..... Fatalities all around for me.

Re: Which Pumice should I buy? Solved

If you are ever in an IKEA they do some good general purpose pumice (it is not actually called that).

Re: Aeoniums showing Spring colours

Aeonium's seem to be your current favourite Stuart, thanks for brining them along to Dartford :)
