Updated seed lists

Postby Aiko » Thu Nov 28, 2013 12:48 pm

As it is the time to start ordering seeds again, let's start a notification when certain seed lists are updated.

ADBLPS from France has updated its list since last Monday or Tuesday: http://adblps-graines-cactus.com/commander_EN.html. Oddly though, the links to the PDF and excel files do not work. But if you go to the France version (http://adblps-graines-cactus.com/commander.html) you can download the files. Or change the links of the PDF and Excel to 24 November instead of 25 November...

Interesting notes: compared to last year the list now includes less Massonia species (boooo!), but the rare Yavia cryptocarpa is on the list again and this list is the only one I know of that offers Yavia seeds.

Used to have a good list of Melocactus including rare ones you couldn't get anywhere else but this year he only has 3 very common ones listed. Real shame :(

Some cool stuff, but I've already bought far too many seeds for this winter's sowing. :razz:

If we're notifying when seed lists are updated, then I should probably say that the Succseed list was updated earlier this month. Got some nice Eriosyce forms I didn't have and some other fun stuff. :grin:

Thanks for the post but Did you get any Yavia cryptocarpa germination from this years seed I didn't (td) but had 4 x geohintonia Mexicana so was happy with that.

Similarly, initially 1 out of 10 Yavia, which I subsequently killed. However, in late summer another one popped up which I've failed to kill so far. (tu)

Same for another Czech seed distributor, Cactus Hobby Brno.
(I ordered from them both again after good experience last year)

Also Koehres has been updated as of earlier this week.
