Re: Pesticide ban?

You seem to have bought the agrochemical industry propaganda, Dave. I don't agree. Unfortunately what he says is true, lower pesticide use = more wastage due to predators. This means more land scape requirements to get the same yield and increased prices. They are a essential necessity, bees are un...

Sorry to contradict haworthia-org, but with the exception of H. limifolia, koelmaniorum and mcmurtryi , haworthias are plants which grow during the cooler months of the year.
